Computational Design of Photovoltaic Materials

Daniel Davies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Design principles are outlined for developing new materials that enable sustainable solar energy conversion through light-to-electricity conversion in photovoltaic devices. Important physical descriptors that are accessible from first-principles simulations include optical absorption, electrical conductivity, work-functions, thermodynamic stability, and defect tolerance.
