IAA – Lambda: Continuous flow synthesis of quantum dots for luminescent downshifting films

Project: Research council

Project Details


Description: The aim of this project was the synthesis of luminescent nanoparticles to make efficiency enhancing coatings for silicon solar cells. In our initial scoping project with Lambda, we worked with copper indium disulfide quantum dots, which are expensive and prone to aggregation making them more difficult to incorporate into films. We wanted to show that there were alternative, more suitable materials that we could synthesise using flow chemistry. We also aimed to carry out a cost analysis to better understand what type of nanoparticles would be suitable to create an affordable end product.
