CENTRE FOR HYBRID AND ORGANIC SOLAR ENERGY - CHOSE

The Centre for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy (CHOSE) was founded in 2006 from the will of the Lazio Region and the University of Rome Tor Vergata to create a center of excellence in the field of next-generation photovoltaics. CHOSE is distributed across several laboratories, both within the University Campus of Tor Vergata and the Technopole Tiburtino. The latter consists of a 400 square meter laboratory that houses equipment for the fabrication and characterization of organic, hybrid, dye sensitized and perovskite photovoltaic cells, modules and panels and 150 square meters of office space for the incubation of spin-offs generated from research at CHOSE. The other laboratories, totalling roughly 300 square meters in extension, are located within different departments of Tor Vergata. At CHOSE there work more than 30 researchers including graduate students, postdocs and staff. CHOSE has also many collaborations at the regional, national and international levels.

The main objectives of CHOSE consist in the development of fabrication processes for organic and hybrid organic / inorganic solar devices, the definition of a process for the industrialization of these innovative photovoltaic technologies, the technological transfer of these and the development of photovoltaic applications in collaboration with companies at both the domestic and international level.

CHOSE also proposes itself as a reference point for photovoltaic technologies and their applications. In particular, in order to develop specific knowledge within the fields of both conventional and innovative photovoltaics and to prepare profiles of workers that are able to operate over the whole photovoltaic value chain, CHOSE manages a Masters degree course on "Photovoltaic Engineering" and an International School called ISOPHOS dedicated to PhD students and researchers.

FUTURE ENERGY - EXPO ASTANA 2017

CHOSE BETWEEN THE EXCELLENCES OF THE ITALIAN PAVILION

Another prestigious goal for CHOSE, just back from the international scene. It is the result of the presence of CHOSE at the EXPO dedicated to the future of energy, housed in Astana, capital of Kazakhstan, from 10 July to 10 September 2017.

FUTURE ENERGY - EXPO ASTANA 2017

In order to this important event, the first one for an Asian country, in the frame of the very suggestive setting of the italian pavilion designed by the architect Paolo Desideri Team, the Centre for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy of the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" has been selected by the Lazio Region to represent one of the excellence more in line with strategic actions aimed at ecological sustainability.

Sun Trip 2015

AGGIORNAMENTO 17/11/2015

Antonio De Chiara ha concluso in nona posizione su 25 partecipanti il Sun Trip 2015. Primo italiano a partecipare e concludere con successo il Sun Trip. Ha viaggiato, con la sua bici tandem solare, in 10 paesi differenti totalizzando 7000km in soli 54 giorni, scoprendo paesaggi inediti ,incontrando locali e spiegando cosa significhi energia solare e viaggiare liberamente grazie al sole.
Ulteriori 5000km percorsi da Milano a Berlino e ritorno a Salerno per un totale di 12000km ,3 mesi di viaggio effettivi, 5 mesi su strada.

Breaking news: CHOSE push the record of Perovskite module efficiency up to 13%

Researchers of CHOSE fabricated a Perovskite module on 10cm2 active area with a record efficiency of 13%. The results of the work have been published on Progress in Photovoltaics.

ABSTRACT
We fabricated monolithic solid state modules based on organometal CH3NH3PbI3 and CH3NH3PbI3-xClx perovskites using poly-(3-hexylthiophene) and Spiro-OMeTAD as hole transport materials (HTMs). In particular, we developed innovative and scalable patterning procedures to minimize the series resistance at the integrated series-interconnections. By using these optimization steps, we reached a maximum conversion efficiency of 8.2% under AM1.5G at 1 Sun illumination conditions using the CH3NH3PbI3-xClx perovskite and the poly-(3-hexylthiophene) as HTM. Finally, we investigated the double-step deposition of CH3NH3PbI3 using the Spiro-OMeTAD, reaching a maximum conversion efficiency on active area (10.08 cm2) equal to 13.0% (9.1% on aperture area) under AM1.5G at 1 Sun illumination conditions. This remarkable result represents the highest PCE value reached for the perovskite solar modules.

PEROVSKITE SOLAR MODULES

Perovskite Solar Modules with 95% Aperture Ratio

Fully laser processed Perovskite Solar Cell modules with 95% Aperture Ratio

Laser patterning has been applied to realize Perovskite solar modules with a ratio between active and total substrate area of 95% and an efficiency of 9.3%. These values are new records for large area (14.5 cm2) fully laser processed perovskite devices. This work signs a forward step to the industrialization of perovskite based solar technology. Results have been published on IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics DOI: 10.1109/JPHOTOV.2017.2732223

GRAPHENE-PEROVSKITE

Graphene-Perovskite Solar module with efficiency 12.6%

Graphene-Perovskite Solar module with efficiency 12.6% on 50 cm2

Graphene interface engineering (GIE) is proposed as an effective way to boost efficiency in Perovskite solar cells and modules. A record efficiency of 12.6% on 50 cm2 module active area has been achieved by introduce Graphene in the mesoporous TiO2 and lithium neutralized graphene oxide (GO-Li) at the mTiO2/perovskite.
Results have been published on ACS Energy Lett. 2017, 2, 279−287
