The institute Silicon Photovoltaics is looking for:
Postdoctoral Scientist (f/m) (Materials development and characterization for silicon heterojunction and perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells)Reference No.: EE 2018/13
At Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, high efficiency silicon heterojunction solar cells with conversion efficiencies exceeding 23% are developed. The institute Silicon Photovoltaics focuses on new concepts and materials for future high efficiency concepts, including perovskite/silicon tandem cells. Materials and devices are characterized with cutting-edge analytical methods including synchrotron-based spectroscopy using the new EMIL facility at HZB’s BESSY synchrotron.
- Development of PECVD/PVD/ALD deposition processes for silicon- and metal oxide-based contact layers
- On- and off-synchrotron based materials and interface analytics using photoelectron spectroscopy
- Development of cell concepts for silicon heterojunction and perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells
- Contribution to national and international R&D projects on silicon-based photovoltaics
- Support in supervising PhD students and M.Sc. students
- Completed PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Sciences or Renewable Energies
- Comprehensive knowledge in technology and physics of semiconductor devices and/or solar cells with a focus on silicon-wafer based technology
- Experience in thin-film synthesis using vacuum-based deposition technologies, ideally for photovoltaic applications
- Expertise on characterization/analysis of thin films, interfaces and devices, preferentially including photoelectron spectroscopy
- Solution-oriented work in a team with technology enthusiasm
