Cafe Scientifique Henley Presents ‘Perovskite: Better Solar and Brighter Lights’

Cafe Scientifique Henley presents ‘Better solar and brighter lights: how the perovskite material promises to change the world’ on Wednesday 16st November at Henley Hockey Club. Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.

Perovskite is a calcium titanium oxide mineral used in solar cells. Perovskite solar cells have shown remarkable progress in recent years with rapid increases in efficiency, from reports of about 3% in 2009 to over 25% today. Easily processable and band gap tunable, perovskite promises to be the future material in your solar cells and LEDs.

Speaker – Akash Dasgupta

Akash has a Masters degree from University of Bristol, and a year’s industrial experience at the central laser facility. He is currently in the third year of his PhD at Oxford University.

The talk will last for 45 minutes, followed by a Q&A. Liquid refreshments will be available at the bar.
