Apple of inspiration for the record tandem solar cell

December 19 2018

The president of Slovenia, Borut Pahot, recognised the recent achievement of 25.5% efficient tandem pervoskite-silicon solar. The president handed the Apple of inspiration to the scientists that developed the record cell. Dr. Marko Jošt, Dr. Benjamin Lipovšek, Prof. Dr. Janez Krč and Prof. Dr. Marko Topič from Laboratory of photovoltaics and optoelectronics, and Prof. Dr. Steve Albrecht and Prof. Dr. Bernd Rech who represented the co-authors from Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin received the Apple of inspiration.


The Vodovnik Award for PhD Thesis

December 7 2018

Dr. Marko Jošt receiverd this year's Vodovnik Award for outstanding PhD thesis. Marko was a PhD student as a Junior Researcher in Laboratory of photovoltaics and optoelectronics. He received his PhD from University of Ljubljana as well as from Technische Universität Berlin, where he was also awarded with highest honor summa cum laude.



The Record Tandem Solar Cell

November 12 2018

During his postdoctoral training at Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin, Dr. Marko Jošt and co-workers developed a record perovskite – silicon tandem solar cell with 25.5% efficiency. Such high efficiency was achieved using a textured foil, which was developed in Laboratory of photovoltaics and optoelectronics. The research was conducted in the scope of bilateral German-Slovenian project and published in the renown scientific journal Energy and Environmental Science.


Defense of the PhD Thesis

October 26 2018

PhD student Rok Kimovec defended his PhD thesis entitled Analysis of laser power converters in laser based power supplies on 26th of October at 1:00 PM in Diploma room at Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
