The groups at Uppsala University

Gerrit Boschloo

Associate Professor Gerrit Boschloo obtained his Ph.D. in 1996 at Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands). He held post-doctoral positions at University College Dublin (Ireland) with Prof. D.J. Fitzmaurice and at Uppsala University (Sweden) with Prof. Anders Hagfeldt. After a period as a researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, he currently holds a position as an Associate Professor at the Department of Physical and Analytical Chemistry, Uppsala University. His main research interest is advanced photoelectrochemical characterization of dye-sensitized solar cells and nanostructured semiconductors. He is author of more than 90 peer-reviewed articles.

Erik Johansson

Assistant professor Erik Johansson's research interests are molecular interfaces in photovoltaic devices. I investigate both functional device properties and more fundamental small scale and short time scale properties and try to link these to obtain a better understanding of the devices. The techniques used for these investigations are X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), photoelectrochemical measurements, laser pump probe spectroscopies, and synchrotron based spectroscopies.

Haining Tian

Haining Tian is a Assistant professor in Physical Chemistry department in Uppsala university, 2014. The group focuses on development of new ideas and construction of devices for solar energy conversion at the molecular level. For water splitting, we immobilize catalysts and photosensitizers on semiconductors to form photoelectrodes for carrying out light-driven H2 evolution from water. For solar cells, we use electron conductors instead of ubiquitous liquid redox electrolytes and propose the concept of p-type solid state dye sensitized solar cells (DSCs). With this concept, we expect to achieve high photovoltage in p-type DSCs, thus obtaining improved overall efficiency in this type solar cell. Transient spectroscopy is employed to systematically investigate molecular behavior on semiconductor surface.
