The Approved Proposal:
Green synthesis of organometal perovskite solar cells. This project aims to understand the mechanism that governs the formation and crystallisation process of organic-inorganic lead halide perovskite films from non-toxic, environmentally friendly, protic ionic liquids. The project will develop new ionic liquid solvent systems that deliver appropriate morphology, and electrical and optical properties to fabricate high performance perovskite solar cells using environmentally friendly, low-toxicity processes. Successful achievement of the outcomes will enable environmentally-friendly, industrial scale processing of perovskite materials, placing Australia at the forefront of organometallic perovskite materials processing with applications in renewable energy and other electro-optical applications.
