Renewable Energy Laboratory
Renewable Energy Laboratory, located in the New Horizon Building on the Clayton Campus of Monash University, has a long research history of thin film solar cell technologies. the researchers from Renewable Energy Laboratory have achieved significant research outcomes across a range of thin film solar cells designs, including dye sensitised, organic and perovskite solar cells. The chief investigators have published more than 140 high-impact papers of which 11 highly cited peer-reviewed papers are listed in the Top 1% in their field. The laboratory proudly holds two key patents of perovskite fabrication technologies, which are world-widely recognised as the antisolvent and the gas assisted technique.
The Renewable Energy Laboratory has a wide range of research equipment specialised in material synthesis, solar cell fabrication process development, thin film material analysis and photovoltaic/optoelectronic device characterisations. The Laboratory also boats strong research bonds with sister-institutes in the Monash research precinct, including CSIRO, ANSTO (The Australian Synchrotron), and Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN), which extends our capability for printable and microelectronic level research at high quality industrial level with short process development period.
