Inverse Design of Functional Hetero-Interfaces in Photovoltaic Applications


The PVnegf code, recently developed at the Forschungszentrum J├╝lich IEK-5 institute is at the base of this project. The first objective is to improve PVnegf flexibility and accuracy by introducing several mathematical and algorithmic optimizations. Concurrently the plan is to blueprint a number of design principles targeting specific features for a given desired functionality. The end result of the project will be the identification of core features opening a path towards the surgical design of complex hetero-interfaces which can then be compared against the outcome of experimental tests.
