AUCAOS Members in ARENA Grant Success

Assoc. Prof. Chris McNeill (Monash University), Prof. Mats Anderson (Flinders University) and Dr Nikos Kopidakis (Macquarie University) have been awarded $840,000 from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to develop efficient and stable all-polymer solar cells. The project – which is led out of Monash University – will accelerate the development of new materials through rapid screening of new polymers with time-resolved microwave conductivity. A particular focus will be placed on materials that are not only stable, but also scalable, with all cells to be prepared using printing processes to enable rapid upscaling to roll-to-roll processing.
