Harry Cronin, lead research engineer at DZP Technologies, is presenting DZP’s latest results into the use of printable perovskite materials in the manufacture of next generation solar cells at the International Conference on Materials for Advanced Technologies in Singapore on 22 June.
Harry will be presenting DZP’s latest research which is focused on production processes that use both scalable deposition methods and less toxic solvents – both key steps in the route to commercialisation – for perovskite based solar technologies. At the conference DZP are seeking commercial and academic partners for next phase development of their perovskite ink technologies.
Harry said “Although commercialisation of these techniques is still 18 months some time away, these results are a significant step in clearing some of the major barriers to the use of perovskite as a viable, next generation, printable solar material”.
DZP Technologies, specialists in inks for flexible electronics, were founded in 2008 in Cambridge. ICMAT 2017 runs from June 18-23 in Suntec, Singapore. The research was carried out as part of the University of Surrey’s CDT in MiNMaT, funded by EPSRC (UK), and is further supported by a fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.
