Water molecule using Burai 1.3 and Quantum Espresso

Course: Electronic properties of semiconductors by AB-INITIO Profesor: Dr. Raciel Jaimes López  (Postdoctoral at IER-UNAM) Simulation of water molecule formation using Burai 1.3 and Quantum Espresso Viewer by Jmol Last month I attended the course Electronic properties of semiconductor by AB-Initio at IER-UNAM, on the 1st day we had a quick view about the background of DFT (Density Functional Theory), plane waves and pseudopotentials. During the course, we learn about the open-code Quantum Espresso software which is used for electronic-structure…

Paper: Kesterite solar cell with 12.6% efficiency

Cited 1900 times (May 2019) -  Journal: Advanced Energy Materials Link: Device Characteristics of CZTSSe Thin-Film Solar Cells with 12.6% Efficiency Challenge: Decrease Voc deficit of current CZTSSe (1.13 eV) solar cells. The reported device has 12.6 % efficiency with  500 mV of Voc from a maximum of 820 mV calculated by SQ analysis. Therefore if Voc is enhanced the device would get better. But to achieve this enhancement we should understand the dependence between minority carrier lifetime and recombination process.…
