Fiacre Rougieux has a PhD in the field of photovoltaics and semiconductor materials. Between 2012 and 2015, he was an ARENA Post-doctoral Fellow at the ANU where he developed high-efficiency and low-cost solar cell concepts. One of the outcomes of his research was a world efficiency record for a solar cell made with Updgraded Metallurgical Grade silicon. Dr. Rougieux is currently an ARC DECRA fellow at the ANU where he explores the physics of defects in high efficiency devices. Since starting his PhD in 2008, he has published and co-authored more than 60 papers. His research interests include solar grade silicon, growth-related defects and advanced solar cells processes.

My main research interest is to generate the knowledge and techniques required for the development of very high efficiency silicon solar cells above 26%. I am looking for students enthusiastic about producing technologies to mitigate the negative impacts of defects on high-efficiency solar cells. The student would contribute to the development of novel solar cell processes to enable defect-free silicon and the development of new characterization techniques to image defects in silicon wafers allowing high efficiency solar cells to overcome their current limits and reach their true potential.

My research interests include:

Semiconductor materials: Solar grade feedstocks - Transport and Recombination in silicon - Fundamental semiconductor properties - Impact of growth and feedstock related defects

Solar cells: Characterization - Modelization - Advanced solar cells processes - Low cost solar cells - High efficiency n-type solar cells - Hybrid Solar Cells
