Title: Towards efficient organic thermoelectrics: the interplay between theory and experiment.

Speaker: Jan Anton Koster (University of Groningen)
Time: Dec. 17, 20201, 10:00–11:00
Location: Online (MS Teams)

Koster’s research group is part of the Photophysics and Optoelectronics research unit at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, University of Groningen. The group studies the physics of novel semiconductors and devices. The group’s website may be found at https://www.rug.nl/research/zernike/photophysics-and-opto-electronics/koster-group/

The group is also the driving force behind SIMsalabim: A 1D drift-diffusion simulator for semiconductor devices (LEDs, solar cells, diodes, organics, perovskites). SIMsalabim can be used to simulate current-voltage (JV) characteristics of semiconductor devices. It includes the effects of generation, recombination and trapping of electrons and holes, the effect of ions and dopants, and self-consistently solves the electric field that results from all charged species. More on this may be found at the group’s GitHub page: https://github.com/kostergroup/SIMsalabim

The CCER seminars are aimed at researchers interested in computational approaches to (energy) research. The seminar is small-scale, typically 15 participants, and interactive, offering lots of room for discussion. If you would like to attend, just This email address is being protected from spambots.
