Advertisement for the Post of one JRF/SRF/RA (any one)
Date: 25th December, 2016
Applications are invited for one JRF/SRF/RA for the CSIR funded research scheme (sanction no. 03(1325)/14/EMR-II). The details are as follows:
Title of the research scheme: Carrier Multiplication in Electronically Coupled Semiconductor Nanocrystals and Harvesting
Short description of the research scheme:
Carrier multiplication (CM) is a process, where the several electron – hole (e-h) pairs are generated as a result of the absorption of a single photon. This phenomenon could be useful to enhance the efficiency of solar photovoltaics (PV). In this project, the study of CM in lead chalcogenide QDs electronically coupled to ZnO nanoparticles and the harvesting of charges by ZnO will be undertaken using optical techniques, especially transient absorption (TA) spectroscopy. Moreover, the effect of the size and shape of the QDs and ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) on carrier relaxation processes and hence CM efficiency and carrier harvesting will be investigated.
