Hou Yi, Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS)
Yi Hou is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the NUS and the Head of Perovskite-based Multijunction Solar Cell Groups at Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS). Dr. Hou is leading a research group of over 5 research fellows and 8 PhD students investigating the physics and chemistry of optoelectronic materials and devices to advance sustainable energy. One part of his team will focus on material synthesis and characterizations—perovskites and organics with highly tunable optoelectronic properties—and another on the fabrication of perovskite-based solar cells—a class of semiconductors that has recently emerged and led to astonishing progress in tandem photovoltaics. Hou group’s works have highlighted the basic physical properties of perovskites, resulting in high-performance optoelectronic devices.
Yaohua Mai, Institute of New Energy Technology, Jinan University
Prof. Mai is the Professor, Director of Institute of New Energy Technology, Jinan University. After graduated and received the doctor’s degree from Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany, he joined the Debye Institute of Utrecht University in the Netherlands to engage in the research of thin film silicon materials and solar cells, with more than 30 related papers have been published, which are widely used. One of the papers has become the most cited article by SCI in the field of thin film silicon solar cells in recent five years. In 2005, he set a world record for the conversion efficiency of mono junction microcrystalline silicon pin cells.
Prof. Mai currently also serves as the CTO of Tianwei Thin-Film Photovoltaic Co., Ltd. of China South Industries Group Co., Ltd..
