Per-Anders Stensby Hansen

Researcher - Ansatte SMN

I am working on new materials for solar cells, which can improve the efficiency of existing silicon technology. In short, this involves developing materials that changes the wavelength of the sunlight and adapts in to the solar cell. In this way, the solar cell can become substantially more efficient without changing anything of the cell itself.
