Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) are nanometer-scale semiconductor particles synthesized in and processed from solution. This allows the use of CQD inks to be printed onto flexible substrates for rapid, low-cost fabrication of solar cells. Our interdisciplinary research on CQD solar cells spans materials design and device engineering. Through these, we aim to fabricate a fully solution processed of CQD solar cells.
Qualifications: Student of material science, chemistry and related topics. Ideally having of experience in
hot injection synthesis or synthesis of nano-particles or nano-crystals.
