[Short News] Pay Attention to Materials Science Research at UNIST!

Professor Sang Il Seok gained woldwide attention for attempting to fabricate solar cells based on SbSeI, for the first time!

《Editor’s Note: UNIST has attracted ever-growing worldwide attention due to its capability and promising potential in the research and development of new materials. Here is a brief summary of those inspiring stories.》

■ Professor Sang Il Seok Gained World’s Attention for Attempting to Fabricate Solar Cells Based on SbSeI!

Recent research by Distinguished Professor Sang Il Seok (School of Energy and Chemical Engineering, UNIST) has been introduced via PV Magazine, a leading media platform for the global solar photovoltaics (PV) industry.

As the world-renowned scholar, Professor Seok has contributed to the pioneering works on perovskite solar cells (PSCs). In addition, he has been conducting various studies to complement the long-term stability of PSCs. Recently, Professor Seok has attempted to fabricate solar cells based on antimony selenoiodide (SbSeI), for the first time.

Although the new cell exhibited a power conversion efficient of 4.10%, the power conversion efficiency for the first perovskite solar cells that were announced just 10 years ago, was only 3%. We expect the new SbSeI-based solar cell will soon break the 20% efficiency barrier for PSCs.

Established in 2008, PV Magazine has been published in Australia, China, France and Germany. In 2010, they launched an online platform, introducing the latest technological trends and solar cells market worldwide.
