CUAS Prof. Zarbakhsh was recently elected through the Voting of European Members as the new leader of the Working Group on Industrial Perspectives in Multiscale Solar. “The research on this project includes Multiscale Modeling of Solar Cells, Light Management with the help of 3D Printed Optics, Simulation and Modeling of Photonic Crystals to improve the efficiency of Solar Cells”, explains Zarbakhsh.
Javad Zarbakhsh, Profession for Computational Engineering and Austrian delegate and Management Committee Member of EU Project “COST Action Multiscale Solar”
Just recently He was invited to give a talk in Institute of Physics, Belgrade, Serbia on “Multidisciplinary Perspectives in Light Management and Solar Technology: Market Survey and opportunities for Academic – Industrial Collaboration”
About the European Multiscale Solar Project
“The research on this project includes Multiscale Modeling of Solar Cells, Light Management with the help of 3D Printed Optics, Simulation and Modeling of Photonic Crystals to improve the efficiency of Solar Cells”, explains Zarbakhsh.
Nanostructures show unique tunable material properties with major and proven potential for state-of-the-art optoelectronics. Exploiting them for the challenging implementation of next generation solar cell architectures requires novel multiscale modelling and characterization approaches which capture both the peculiar features at nanoscale and their impact on the optoelectronic performance at device levels.
To foster progress towards such approaches, MULTISCALESOLAR creates a new network of experts defragmenting knowledge by combining existing research activities to address key issues in in next generation photovoltaics raised by academic and industrial end users. It provides quantum mechanical descriptions of electronic, optical and vibrational properties in order to parametrize mesoscopic models for the dynamics of charge carriers, photons and phonons in nanostructures. This yields effective material parameters for use in macroscopic device level models validated at each step by experiment.
This Action combines theoretical and experimental expertise in industry and academia benefitting the European Research Area. The Action actively addresses gender issues, and favors early stage researchers, developing their scientific and management skills. The Action yields, for the first time, validated multiscale understanding of nanostructure properties for optoelectronic applications, with a focus on third generation photovoltaics.
