Materials and devices for solar cells

About Us

The Materials and Devices for Solar Cells (MDSS) group is part of research groups within the Research Center for Electronics and Telecommunications, Indonesian Institute of Science (P2ET LIPI).

Our group is inspired to develop technology to address the pressing need of sustainable, yet green and clean energy resources for humanity. Our research is primarily focused on the development of materials syntheses and device fabrications for solar energy driven applications. We are currently developing novel ways to build and improve the performance stability of dye-sensitized solar modules. Moreover, we are also investigating new materials and methods to develop polymer- and perovskite-based solar cells.
