BC-62 Researcher - Epitaxy, fabrication and characterisation of photovoltaic materials
Contract: Fixed term – 2 years
We seek a postdoctoral researcher to design and develop reliable and robust Al(Ga)InP cells for high performance at light levels as appropriate to indoor illumination (spectrum and intensity) and the needs of the devices to be powered. The epi-structures will be grown to permit realisation of thin transferrable devices with enhanced photon absorption characteristics. These devices would be integrated in series connection for high voltage/low current applications. The structures will be initially deposited on lattice matched substrates before investigating deposition on alternative mismatched low-cost substrates. The aim will be to find means to passivate the structures. The work is part of a joint project with partners in Dublin City University, Ulster University, and the QESST centre in the US.
Appointment may be made on the Postdoctoral Researcher Scale €37,873 - €45,041. Salary placement on appointment will be in accordance with public sector pay policy.
