About the role
Peafowl Plasmonics is a deep-tech startup focused on creating transparent solar cells, pioneering the first commercial direct plasmonic solar cell technology. Our solar cells uniquely convert light into electricity using plasmonic nanoparticles, and we're on the lookout for innovative minds to join us!
We are inviting ambitious Master’s Students to undertake Thesis Projects in the fields of plasmonics, nanoparticles, and thin films. This is an opportunity for applied research where your work could significantly contribute to the next generation of photovoltaics and potentially be integrated into a groundbreaking product. Projects can be conducted in collaboration with UU, KTH or other Swedish universities.
We are looking for a few talented students, for projects within:
Plasmonic Nanoparticle Deposition for Novel Light Harvesting: Explore cutting-edge deposition techniques to optimize light absorption and conversion efficiency in solar cells.
Development of Thin Film Materials for Efficient Energy Transfer: Investigate new materials and layer structures to enhance the performance of plasmonic solar cells.
Surface Chemistry Modification for Improved Nanoparticle Performance: Experiment with surface treatments of nanoparticles to optimize their efficiency and stability in solar cell applications
- Currently enrolled in a Master’s program in Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Nanotechnology, or a related field.
- A strong foundation in materials science and an interest in solar energy and nanoparticle technology.
- Previous laboratory experience, particularly in nanoparticle synthesis or related areas, is highly desirable.
- Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
- Effective communication skills, both written and verbal, for documenting and presenting research findings.
At Peafowl Plasmonics, we're not just developing technology; we're building a brighter, sustainable future. If you are passionate about contributing to innovative solar energy solutions, we would love to hear from you!
