The focus of her project is to use a photophysical approach to probe the processes behind perovskite solar cell stability. A combination of structural and chemical characterisation techniques will be coupled with advanced optoelectronic spectroscopies to develop an understanding of the properties of perovskite under aging stresses. By testing under isolated stress factors, it will be possible to identify stability issues and develop an understanding of the associated degradation mechanisms. Solar cells will be fabricated, aged and characterised in order to observe how these stability issues manifest in devices under working conditions. By testing different perovskite materials and methods to mitigate instabilities, it will be possible to develop guidelines for material and device design towards improved stability.
