Prof. Yabing Qi

Perovskite solar cell research continues to progress rapidly on various fronts. My group at OIST is making efforts to use surface science and advanced material characterization to obtain in-depth understanding about perovskite materials and solar cells [1]. In this talk, I will present our research progress [2-10].
