Solar cell materials can be assessed by spectral and temporal fluorescence spectroscopy using the products offered by Edinburgh Instruments.
The energy received on earth by the sun in one hour is equivalent to the energy consumed by the world in a year. Photovoltaic solar cells convert this solar energy into electricity in a sustainable way compared to fossil fuels.
Solar cells can be made of semiconductors, polymers, dyes and phosphors. Organic as well as organic/inorganic approaches are currently followed.
Research is focussed on materials that absorb a wider part of the solar spectrum, while improving the electronic transport at a low cost. In addition, charge mobility and stability are challenges especially for dye-sensitised and perovskite solar cells.
The fluorescence emission, quantum yield and lifetime of nanoscale materials can be characterised with a range of Edinburgh Instruments’ products.
Nanoscale materials such as quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles and nanostructures exhibit strong spatial confinement upon photo-excitation and tuneable emission, which makes them extremely useful in photonic applications.
Emission at desired wavelengths has been widely demonstrated in the past, however research is currently focused on improving the quantum yield as well as the photo-stability and chemical stability for example in core/shell geometries. New materials are investigated in the zeroth dimension in dots, the second in sheets such as graphene, or the third in nanostructures, whereas applications from optoelectronic devices to medical diagnostics and quantum computing.

SCI was founded in 1993 as a privately held corporation headquartered in Carlsbad, California. Today, we comprise a global network of sales, service, and support offices strategically located in China, Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States.
Typically our clients are working in research or manufacturing of advanced semiconductor materials for integrated circuits or optoelectronic devices. Recently photovoltaic solar energy conversion and thermoelectric materials have become an important part of our activities.
Our experience and proven solutions include the measurement of majority carrier properties (such as resistivity, carrier concentration, mobility, effective mass, trapping) and minority carrier properties (such as minority carrier lifetime, diffusion length, trapping), in R&D or production environments. We also include associated measurements of insulating (dielectric) and metal thin film properties and film thickness and the interface characteristics between these thin films and the semiconductor.
When we use the term “semiconductor” today we mean it in the broadest sense. It can be the elemental materials silicon germanium etc, in single crystal or polycrystalline wafers or in polycrystalline or amorphous thin film form but it can also mean compound semiconductors or alloys of compounds in crystal wafers or polycrystalline thin films and more recently also polymer and organic thin films.
The methods we apply to these problems cover a wide range of technologies ( such as; optical, electronic, magnetic, cryogenic, acoustic, electro-chemical, vacuum etc) supplied by a number of partner companies around the world.
SemiMetrics find the solution first by working with the client, and then find the partners needed to supply the required parts to build the solution. We then offer proven solutions from our portfolio of projects.
