Emanuele Calabrò was born on 8th August of 1987 in Rome. He obtained his MSc in “Material Science and Technology” at Tor Vergata University in 2015, with a thesis based on the application of Bragg Gratings applied for Perovskite Solar Cells (PSCs) and Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs). He performed his PhD in “Electronic Engineering” under the supervision of Prof. Aldo Di Carlo. His topic was the optimization and scaling-up of Low-T based planar Perovskite Solar Cells and Modules followed by the stability analysis of the as fabricated devices. Currently is a Postdoctoral Fellow at C.H.O.S.E. labs under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Reale.

Research Activity

The research activity of Emanuele Calabrò was based on the development and optimization of highly efficient hybrid-organic perovskite solar cells and modules (PSCs & PSMs) based on a low-T approach. The results obtained due the incorporation of a SnO2 layer as ETL led the achievement of high performances. The easy scale-up of the planar structure, coupled with an optimized selective laser system ablation, permitted the fabrication of PSMs up to 50 cm2 with high aspect and ratio high-performance. Furthermore, the perovskite doping with innovative materials permits to increase the stability of the photovoltaic devices under thermal stress. His research is currently focused on the "COPPER" Project funded by the Lazio and Lazio Innova Region. The aim of the project is the evaluation of the impact of semitransparent organic PV with tunable colors applied to agrivoltaic systems and how it affects the growing plants.
