Thin oxide films for perovskite solar cells

Period
2020 - 2023
Financing organization
Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
Project Summary

In this project we are going to use TiO2 base as an electron-transporting material and investigate a solution processes for deposition of thin films of transient metals (Mo and other) oxides and evaluated optical, structural and morphological properties after annealing at different temperatures in different atmospheres.

Project Summary

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) includes all types of degradation of materials caused or affected by microorganisms. A wide range of materials can be affected, including metal, plastic, concrete, etc. The prevention and control of MIC is a major challenge, as knowledge in many technical and scientific disciplines and industrial activities is needed to identify the root causes and develop environmental remediation and mitigation measures - from materials science, technological chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry. , corrosion engineering and integrity management.

A major challenge that hinders progress in MIC research and control is the lack of smooth and synergistic cooperation / communication between materialists, corrosion engineers, microbiologists, chemists and integrity managers (plant / infrastructure operators), and insufficient interaction between academia. and industry. The main objective of this COST action is to create a common MIC network in Europe (Euro-MIC), in collaboration with other non-European MIC experts, bringing together the various stakeholders, thus loading up the MIC research area in order to achieve more sustainable, safe and reliable MIC management practices and infrastructure integrity.
