Over Summer 2018, Edoardo Altamura has worked as a Rank Prize Optoelectronics Intern on developing techniques for photovoltaic characterisation. He describes his research: Photovoltaic energy proved to play a decisive role in a variety of areas, from everyday life power consumption to space satellites. Assessing the efficiency of devices capable
Edoardo has completed his 10 week placement in the group as an optoelectronics intern, funded by the Rank Prize funds. During his stay he has developed hardware, software, and optical approaches to use compressive sensing with low-cost equipment for characterising photovoltaic cells. Many thanks to Edoardo for his hard work!
The group will host another 10-week summer studentship, funded through the Rank Prize Funds. The project on “Rapid, multispectral photovoltaic performance mapping using structured light illumination” will see one of our 3rd year undergraduate students Edoardo Altamura design, build and test a device for high speed characterisation. We look forward
