WG6: New Device Engineering

Objectives:

1. Design the next generation stable OPVs

Design of the next generation stable OPVs taking into account results from other WGs, especially WG4 and WG5. Brainstorming meetings will take place, with special focus on industrial partners’ input to arrive at innovative and industrially-relevant solutions for the problems encountered.

 

2. Simulation and Modelling

The new devices will be validated through modelling and simulation in order to predict the best device configuration and the novel OPV lifetime.

 

Main deliverables:

To deliver stable OPV devices based on the knowledge gained within all other working groups. Fabrication of the next-generation of OPV devices is foreseen (and these are fed back into the production and characterisation scheme starting with WG2). Degradation models to predict device lifetime at different ageing conditions.
