The overall purpose of this project is to achieve high-efficiency lead-free perovskite solar cells by collaboration with Prof. Prof. Feng Gao Linköping University (LiU) in Sweden, as well as develop a lasting collaboration between Linköping University (LiU) in Sweden and UNICAMP in Brazil in the long term. To achieve the high-efficiency devices, we propose to employ the alloying strategy to obtain double perovskite films with the optimised bandgap, and then further boost the efficiency through device engineering (e.g, working with the interfaces). Four key objectives of this project, if successful, will create a new paradigm for lead-free perovskite solar cells and build a long-term partnerships between LiU and UNICAMP. (AU)
