Perovskite solar cells, Lithium ion battery

To satisfy the high demand of energy consumption and alleviate the environmental burdens, the photovoltaic technology has been developed as a reliable alternative sustainable energy source to fossil fuels. The recently emerging perovskite solar cells with high performance and greatly reduced manufacture costs have been regarded as a breakthrough in the photovoltaic field. Despite its rapidly boosting power conversion efficiency in only several years, the developed perovskite solar cells still face a major challenge of poor stability in ambient conditions, which hinders its further commercialization into the marketplace. Hence, Peng Chen's research focuses on the development of efficient and stable perovskite solar cells.

​Peng Chen began his PhD at Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) in 2015. Prior to that, he received his master's and bachelor's degree from School of Chemical Engineering, Shanghai University in 2013 and 2010. Currently, he is doing his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Lianzhou Wang and Dr. Jung Ho Yun.
