Project: Inorganic Photocharging Battery (Inorganic SolStore) – Theoretical Study by First Principle Simulation
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Christian Elsässer
I am investigating the theoretical solid-state physics of particular properties of two prototypical inorganic, perovskite-type compounds: ABX3 and A2BX4 (A: monovalent cations; B: divalent cations; X: monovalent anions). In particular, my research investigates the photo-electronic and electro-chemical properties of these compounds to see how we can use them in the light-absorbing and cation-storing crystalline layers in SolStore hetero-structure systems. To this end, I use a computational quantum mechanical modelling method called density functional theory (DFT) calculation.
