Scholarship Description:

PhD Scholarship for international students - School of Natural and Environmental Sciences University of NewCastle is open for International Students . The scholarship allows PhD level programm(s) in the field of Environmental Science taught at University of Newcastle . The deadline of the scholarship is .

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU) is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham. In addition to undertaking an individual scientific research project described below at one of the three partner Universities, doctoral candidates will engage with added value training opportunities for example in business, innovation and internationalisation through a 4-year training programme that has been designed to maximize the benefits of a cohort approach to doctoral training.

This project will develop a route to photovoltaic devices which can compete with established silicon technology at a fraction of the cost. The proposed solution processed solar cells, can be fully assembled at low temperature, are 1000 times thinner (i.e lightweight), and are environmentally benign. An increasingly intense research effort over the last decade dedicated to lead-based perovskite solar cells has led to performances now exceeding that of silicon photovoltaics, but the toxicity of the material limits the potential for commercialization. This project will develop a method to fabricate devices which have the desirable features of perovskite solar cells but are assembled using non-toxic precursors and solvents and avoid the production of toxic waste streams. The main features of the project are to combine materials synthesis using sustainable approaches with solar cell assembly and testing to develop highly efficient but environmentally benign solar cells.
