Beginning: 04/15/20

CIGS and Perovskite for photovoltaic applications, Lithium batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronics, TiO2 nanotubes as photocatalyst are part of the materials that are studied for the development of renewable energies. Studying their structure and properties involves characterization and Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectroscopy (GD-OES) can provide valuable information thanks to its capability to perform elemental depth profiling and thickness measurement within minutes.

We will provide some insight on the pulsed RF GD-OES technique and show the information it provides on different materials involved in renewable energy: CZTS and CIGS cells, in-operando study of ionic migration in Perovskites, charge/discharge cycles study and failure analysis of lithium battery electrodes and 1D self-aligned TiO2 nanotubes.
