The international doctoral program IGK 2495 was established in 2019 with our partner institute, the Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan, in order to better understand lead-free perovskite materials for electro- optical-mechanical energy conversion systems. Such alternative energy sources will become increasingly vital over the next decades, not only as sources of renewable energy but also for high-tech applications, such as powering unattended wireless sensors. Of particular importance is the improved understanding of multi-length scale phenomena responsible for the energy conversion, development and implementation of state-of-the-art lead-free perovskite materials, novel 2D and 3D processing techniques, and integration into devices. Various synthesis, manufacturing, and experimental techniques will be utilized and coupled to cutting edge simulations, facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration.

The first joint meeting of the Doctoral Researchers  participating in the new International Research Training Group GRK2495 : Energy Conversion Systems took place at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität in Erlangen on January 29, 2020. The Doctoral researchers were welcomed by the spokesperson of the...
