Increasing the diversity of viable photovoltaic materials is critical to allow greater adaptability as the technology continues to expand and develop not only for further increasing the efficiency but also fulfill various application areas for everywhere PV. Kesterite is such a green energy material to capitalize this opportunity, utilizing equally sustainable energy materials for efficient energy conversion. There has been a significant research effort on developing secret recipes to solve the key obstacles to further improve the kesterite solar cell efficiency, while branching out to other potential opportunities such as solar fuel. In this talk, our recent research progress on discovering “secret recipes” for kesterite solar cells and other opportunities such as translating the PV device design for efficient solar-to-fuel generation will be discussed.
Dr Xiaojing Hao obtained her PhD in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering of UNSW in 2010, and currently the Professor at UNSW. Dr Hao has focused her research on low-cost, high-efficiency thin film solar cells and tandem solar cells for more than ten years, researching on various energy materials, initially using Si, and then earth-abundant compound semiconductor materials such as chalcogenides for both solar photovoltaic and solar fuel applications. Prof Hao now leads a strong group in the above areas, achieving a number of efficiency records on emerging thin film solar cells. Prof Hao has published >160 peer-reviewed journal papers, including publications in Nature Energy, Energy and Environmental Science, with several awards for her research excellence. She was the recipient of Inaugural Australian Renewable Energy Agency Postdoc Fellow, previous Australian Research Council (ARC) DECRA, inaugural Sciential Fellow at UNSW and now ARC Future Fellow. She was awarded a number of prestigious national prizes, including 2020 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science: Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the Year, 2021 Australian Academy of Science Pawsey Medal.
