Computational Materials Design

Goals of the Program (brief description of the Program)

Master double degree program "Computational Materials Design" is designed for bachelors with good physical and mathematical background. Courses will be delivered in Rusiian and/or English.

In situations where the straightforward experiments are too complicated or impossible, atomistic materials calculations are commonly applied as an important set of tools to gain insight into the laws of material microstructure development, often being the main, and sometimes the only method for investigation of complicated processes occurring at the nanoscale. As a result, in the last 20 years computational physics has acquired the status of independent approach to materials research. An especially successful in terms of prediction power is the complex treatment of material behaviour from atomistic to technologically relevant time and length scales, known as multiscale modelling approach. This approach is based on the idea that physical phenomena occurring at particular time and length scales are described by the most adequate modelling tools which are computationally practical, while the whole tool set provides a self-consistent hierarchy, where the output of finer methods provides input for more coarse-scale description. The approach becomes especially efficient, if the modelling incorporates experimental validation procedures exploiting specialized techniques able to address the processes occurring at each individual level. Modeling an object or phenomenon by means of computational physics requires a clear formulation of the problem, followed by self-consistent planning of the computer experiment. This course aims at developing the abovementioned skills, supported by intensive introduction to the basics of computational methods of condensed matter physics. The program involves a combination of disciplines of material physics, programming languages, methods of visualization and supercomputing technologies.

The course list and their synopsis

1. Title: Materials for prospective technologies.

Lecturer/ assistant: Assoc.Prof. Karazhanov S.

The course goals

The course addresses study of solar cells that are semiconductor devices converting solar energy into electrical energy. Interest to study, fabrication and characterization of solar cells is increasing from year to year. Many countries, industries, research Institutes and education centers are paying strong attention to that. The aim of the course is to give introduction to solar cells to Master students on research and developments on solar cells. We will focus on principle of operation of solar cells, processes in solar cells, methods of fabrication and characterization of solar cells, recent research and developments in this field.

The course objectives

  • Study about importance of the renewable energy related research in the World and in some particular countries as well as how the renewable energy can help to solve the increasing energy demand. Spectral distribution of solar energy in different regions.
  • The study of the basic principles of operation of solar cells. Concepts of the third and fourth generation photovoltaic devices.
  • Study of modern designs of solar cells and materials to be used in solar cells.Transparent and conducting films, light absorbers, passivation layers, and metallic contacts.
  • Study of the ways of modulating of electrical and optical properties of the materials by intrinsic and extrinsic defects.
  • Study of the role of the generation-recombination processes in semiconductors. Study of the basic laws of charge carrier generation-recombination processes in semiconductors.
  • Study of the role of impurities in operation of solar cells.

The course modules

Module 1. Renewable energy

Energy demand on the Earth is increasing from year to year whereas the available energy resources such as coal, gas and oil are restricted. Renewable energy can be supportive to solve the increasing energy demand. One of them is the solar energy, which can be converted into electrical energy by means of solar cells. Solar cells are the semiconductor devices, which absorbs the sunlight and converts the energy into electrical energy. This is called photovoltaics. The course is about introduction to photovoltaics.

One of the important aspects is understanding of renewable energy and why this is important. Another important aspect is how solar radiation is distributed and how it depends on different geographical locations. Then we come to semiconductor materials that can absorb the sunlight. The materials will be classified according to their capability to absorb sunlight, possibility of making photovoltaic devices and simplicity of technology of making of such devices. Main focus will be given to the requirements for materials to be used in photovoltaics. Different types of materials to be used as different layers in solar cells will be analyzed. Another important point is the method of synthesis, availability, and price, and toxicity of the materials These issues will be analyzed in the lecture.

Within the last 60 year time many types of solar cells have been developed based on different types of materials. Some of the cells will be analyzed. Working principles of them will be discussed.

Module 2. Processes in solar cells

Defects and impurities play key role in efficiency of the solar cells. Some of them can enhance electrical conductivity of semiconductors and can be useful for tuning the Fermi level and making n- and p-type layers. They are shallow level semiconductors and are useful for making the p-n-junctions. The other type of impurities are deep level and can enhance generation recombination processes. They lead to decreasing the charge carrier lifetime and diffusion length and can lead to decreasing the efficiency of the cells. There are many types of such defects. Mostly they are transition metal elements and/or defect-impurity complexes. Properties of these defects, ways of processing of the materials and characterizing these defects will be discussed more in detail.

We will focus on analysis of charge carrier recombination. Different theoretical models of recombination will be analyzed and charge carrier lifetime will be derived. The most widely used theory is developed by Schockley-Read-Hall. The theory will be analyzed more in detail. Analytic expression for the carrier lifetime will be derived. Methods of characterization of the lifetime will be discussed. Subsequently, we will analyze other theoretical models for the generation-recombination processes through more complicated defects such as the donor acceptor pairs, recombination through excitons, bistable defects, etc.

Transport of free charge carriers is one of the important issues. We will analyze theoretical bases of the charge carrier transport and simplification depending on different types of solar cell structures and related boundary conditions. Based on the above analysis, solar cell parameters will be derived and analyzed.

There are different methods related to fabrication and characterization of solar cells. The methods will be analyzed as well.

This course is a chance to prove what students have learned, by applying the concepts students have studied individually to solving a new, difficult problem. In addition, this course will require students to think about these concepts in an integrated fashion, always keeping in mind how changing one system or parameter can affect all the others. Finally, this course offers students the chance to develop their research and literature searching skills, as you will definitely have to delve into new, unfamiliar fields to get the answers and results they want.
