Fabio Matteocci was born on December 19th 1983 in Rome. He graduated in Electronic Engineer at TorVergata's University, Rome in 2009. He did a thesis on "Planning and Optimization of DSC Solar Cell with Ionic Liquid Electrolytes". Since February 2010 from February 2011 he worked on Physics Department of University of Rome Tor Vergata in Nirap Project for DSC modules fabrication. From 2010 to 2013, he was a PhD in Electronic Engineering Department of University of Rome Tor Vergata discussing a thesis called “Up scaling processes for solid state solar cells”. From 2014-2016, he was a post doc in CHOSE lab with aim to scale up the fabrication process of perovskite solar modules. Since 2016, he is a researcher in the Electronic Engineering Department of University of Rome Tor Vergata.

Research Activity

My research activity within CHOSE lab (2010-Present) is focused on the development of hybrid organic/inorganic optoelectronic devices such as solar cell and photodetectors. During my PhD (2010-2013), I focused my activity on the up-scaling processes of solid-state hybrid solar cell such as dye solar cell and perovskite solar cell. The up-scaling process, the deposition techniques, the sealing procedures and the long-term stability of perovskite solar cell and modules are the main topics of my activity. Further developments are based on the fabrication of high efficiency and high stability perovskite solar module by using scalable deposition such like blade coating and slot-die. Up to now, I published more than 20 articles in high impact journals focused on perovskite technology.
