Solar cell improvements reduce fossil fuel dependence

15 February 2016  •  Author: Edinburgh Instruments

We are delighted to have accomplished installation of our top end fluorescence spectroscopy systems at the brand new Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology (VISTEC) in Thailand.

Solar cell Improvements reduce fossil fuel dependence

VISTEC is funded by PPT, a petroleum company, with the aim of high impact research publications in the science and technology field. The University has invested heavily in state of the art scientific facilities and recruited some of the best professors and researchers, including NRCT Research Award and Outstanding Scientist Award winners.

The FLS980 Fluorescence Spectrometer and the LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer will be used to investigate and improve the efficiency and photochemical characteristics of organic solar cell technology. The group researchers are aiming to reduce global consumption and dependence on fossil fuels through improving the overall light-collection efficiency and simplify the manufacture of this type of organic solar cell.

Our engineers attended a week-long installation and training seminar at the University to provide the local research group with systems operation and servicing training.
We continue to diversify our systems and develop new and innovative products to meet the needs of our customers worldwide.
