Big congratulations to Dr. Christian Wolff and Dr. Pietro Caprioglio for successfully defending their PhD theses at Uni Potsdam on last Friday and Monday! Two amazing people with two amazing talks combined with outstanding knowledge of perovskites and a significant contribution to the field led to 2x summa cum laude, the highest distinction in Germany. We are very proud of you - you did it!

We wish you both a successful start in your postdocs at EPFL Neuchâtel (Christian) and Oxford (Pietro) and thanks for the great times!

Shanshan's comparative study on the electro-optical properties of MAPI and triple cation has been recently published in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces (link to the paper)! Congratulations to former group member Shanshan!

  • If you are interested to get hands on lab experience and work on an exciting new solar cell technology (yes, we are talking about perovskites), you are right here as we are looking for Bachelor and Master students to join our group. Contact Martin Stolterfoht (stolterf@uni-potsdam.de). For further information, have a look at the Research Activities of the Perovskite Group. (June, 2020).

  • We have currently no funding available for Ph.D. and Postdoc opportunities. Please check later again! (June, 2020).
  • Christian and Pietro have submitted their Ph.D. thesis - Whohoo !!! (June, 2020)

Our paper on identification of recombination losses in perovskite solar cells published in Nature Energy has been picked up by several science news webpages.
