About the M2N research group

Welcome to the Molecular Materials and Nanosystems (M2N) research group. The M2N group is an interdepartmental research group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), active in the Departments of Applied Physics and Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. It brings together researchers from these two fields and aims at establishing a coherent research and educational program on the physics and chemistry of functional nanostructured organic and inorganic molecular materials and devices.

    Congratulations to Dr. Subash Gireesan, who successfully defended his PhD thesis "Modeling Novel Thermal Transport Phenomena in Semiconductor Nanowires"
  • 21 April 2021
    Solliance partners TNO, imec/EnergyVille and the Eindhoven University of Technology, realized a 18.6% efficient highly near infrared transparent perovskite solar cell. The latter, when combined in a four terminal tandem configuration with an efficient Panasonic crystalline silicon (c-Si) cell or with a Miasolé flexible CIGS cell, delivers new record power conversion efficiencies of 28.7% and 27.0%, respectively. Check this link for more information.
  • 10 February 2021
    In a collaboration between USA based MiaSolé Hi-Tech Corp and European Solliance Solar Research a power conversion efficiency of 26.5% on a tandem solar cell was established. The architecture combines two thin-film solar cell technologies: a top rigid semi-transparent perovskite solar cell with a bottom flexible copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) cell. At Solliance TNO, imec, and TU/e contributed to realize this perovskite solar cell. Check this link for more details
