Francineide Lopes de Araújo graduated in Physics from the Uberlândia Federal University in 2012. She received her MS degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2014 from the São Carlos School of Engineering at the University of São Paulo (EESC/USP), where she studied optical and structural properties of polyfluorenes through ultrathin films and single-molecule spectroscopy. She received her PhD in Applied Physics in 2018 from the São Carlos Institute of Physics at the University of São Paulo (IFSC/USP), where she acted in organic electronics, specifically in the fabrication and electrical characterization of organic solar cells (OPVs). Currently, she serves as a postdoc at the Institute of Chemistry, University of Campinas, in the Laboratório de Nanotecnologia e Energia Solar (LNES), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ana Flávia Nogueira. Recently, she is a visiting researcher at CHOSE until October 2023, focusing on the fabrication and characterization of perovskite solar cells. Research Supported by FAPESP/Scholarships abroad – Research Internship – Post-doc (Grant number: 22/07847-8).

Research Activity

Francineide Lopes de Araújo's research activity concerns applying graphene materials and 2D perovskite as intra and interlayers in perovskite solar modules (PSMs) using the interface engineering method. These modifications are expected to reduce surface defects, minimize the interfacial recombination and, at the same time, promote fast charge extraction, resulting in PSMs with high performance and stability. From the point of view of processing and cost, the versatility of these materials (graphene and 2D perovskites) in terms of processability and low cost is a beneficial and indispensable characteristic for the expansion and commercialization of PSMs.
