Nam-Gyu Park: The History and Progress of Halide Perovskite Photovoltaics

A plenary talk from SPIE Optics + Photonics 2017.

24 August 2017, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201708.09

Nam-Gyu Park, Sungkyunkwan University (Republic of Korea)In this plenary talk, Nam-Gyu Park of Sungkyunkwan University (ROK) reports on progress made since the first report on the solid-state perovskite solar cell with power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 9.7% in 2012 by his group, noting that certified PCE now reaches 22%.

Perovskite solar cell technology is promising for next-generation photovoltaics (PVs) due to superb performance and very low cost, Park nots.

Park gives an overview of the history of Perovskite photovoltaics and discusses methodologies to achieve hysteresis-free, stable, and high PCE perovskite solar cells.

Nam-Gyu Park is a professor and SKKU-Fellow at School of Chemical Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University (ROK). He received his BS, MS and PhD from Seoul National University (ROK) He has been doing research on high efficiency mesoscopic solar cells including perovskite solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells since 1997.

Park is considered a pioneer in solid state perovskite solar cells, which were first developed in 2012.
