KSC representation in the NGSE PhD-Postdoc Series

Safakath Karuthedath, a research scientist in Prof. Frederic’s Laquai research group has been selected as one of the speakers for the Next Generation Solar Energy (NGSE) PhD-Postdoc Series. This series aims to promote the work of emerging scientists in the field of solar energy. Whereas many talks at mainstream conferences are given by experienced professors and group leaders, here only early career researchers will be given a stage to promote a new generation of promising scientists.

Impurities boost performance of organic solar cells

Sunlight offers a potential solution in the search for an energy source that does not harm the planet, but this depends on finding a way to efficiently turn electromagnetic energy into electricity. Researchers from KAUST have shown how a known herbicide can improve this conversion in organic devices.
