Project: Integrated Photocharging Energy Storage Systems
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Anna Fischer
My research is focused on developing and optimizing photo-rechargeable energy storage systems, such as photobatteries and photosupercapacitors. My aim is to integrate the harvesting and storage of solar energy into a single highly integrated device. This device should have a simple architecture and reduce the loss of energy associated with wiring and interconnection. To this end, my work involves the synthesis of advanced photoactive and capacitive materials, the integration of these materials into functional devices, and the assessment and optimization of these devices regarding their photovoltaic and photo-electrochemical performance.
