oh crap i fear sorry i'm going to talk in english so we're going to move to something a bit more basic
00:00:07
so example easy here is an array of elements and i'm not aware isn't really good
00:00:11
the stuff studying these is that these are very good absorbers now one of the main interest of
00:00:17
our laboratories to find sustainable solutions put energy harvesting any particular to use this on for this
00:00:24
now if we look at the most a fusion solar cells nowadays is are are made of these materials
00:00:32
and these are the size efficiency so the question is can we use this technology for our
00:00:37
homes totalled the forgetting all the energy that need for or or like the nice
00:00:44
and with this we need to calculate me to see how much of these elements are there and you need to
00:00:49
look at this graph here in this graph we just use the buttons of elements in the earth gross
00:00:55
what you see is that reform in elements like silicon aluminium that idea buttons if you look at the ones that they
00:01:01
just show you like got understanding in in you that much less abundant any particular team is very the discourse
00:01:07
so now what we look in our laboratories to persist enable submissions so we
00:01:11
look at two main axes for finding the sustainable solutions for solar energy
00:01:16
one is try to avoid these elements finding new materials that that was with this these ones
00:01:20
but uh using element that that what about that and the second one
00:01:24
is ah going but intelligently in the use of these are materials
00:01:29
and the first edition that one comes into my busy if these materials are expensive and also just use less of it
00:01:36
and so we can go from bought materials to nana still materials and we do this in a
00:01:40
smart way maybe you can uh get a good addition see also and use less resources
00:01:46
and it turns out that nature is nice with us because when we
00:01:49
produces materials in the night away for any features that mentions
00:01:53
you know the right way what we find is that these are structures capture
00:01:57
light around them and the capture like to a very large extent
00:02:01
so it means that they have like not scale lenses and so you need much less mature for
00:02:05
these are not only got another structure but you you you use the space between amanda structures
00:02:10
so we if we do calculations and we look at what happens when we put these
00:02:14
materials that the last the space so what you see here in the top
00:02:18
you see that um how like getting to the structures when you start to spacing them and on the far right what you see is that
00:02:24
when there that is by so uh far apart means that the lights dancing to them so they're able to collect more and more like the round them
00:02:30
so what this says is that they're able to use about ten thousand times
00:02:34
less materials and collect as much less that's the views of eddie
00:02:37
a whispered of these material now not only this but you can try to ah
00:02:43
also use the substrate we have still gonna substrate silicon also can observe
00:02:46
all the parts of this on and off you can have you been highly efficient solar cells by using both than other structures and the cheap substrate
00:02:58
so i would like to finalise the thought to explain what tools we use these are
00:03:01
general tools that are use not only for a solar energy purple many other things
00:03:06
so what we do is i think that sea of high quality material so why
00:03:10
should be the three fives but we also are starting activity or nothing falsified
00:03:15
i very high quality material that are high so that about that body should have and so with elements of that much more abundant
00:03:22
we have a that intends a word in the clean rooms here to get out that are are outstanding and state of the art access to
00:03:29
like the microscopy we do optical spectroscopy to characterise the materials and also
00:03:33
the devices and we do simulations to guide our design of course
00:03:37
so with these i think of course the people in my group that do the job
