Calcium-stannous oxide solid solutions for solar devices

Ned Taylor, Arnaldo Galbiati, Monica Saavedra, and Steve Hepplestone have just published an article exploring the potential of calcium-doped stannous oxide, (Sn:Ca)xO, for its potential as an active layer in a solar device. By identifying a suitable oxide active layer, the authors hope to design an all-oxide solar cell. This work was performed by Ned […]

ARTEMIS: Ab initio restructuring tool enabling the modelling of interface structures

Ned Taylor, Frank Davies, Isiah Rudkin, Conor Price, Ed Chan, and Steve Hepplestone have published an article detailing the group’s first large-scale commercial scientific software package, ARTEMIS. This work was led by Ned, Frank and Steve, with help from the entire ARTEMIS research group. Isiah aided in development of crucial modules and subroutines of the […]

The Potential of Overlayers on Tin-based Perovskites for Water Splitting

Ned Taylor, Conor Price, Alex Petkov, Marcus Carr, Jason Hale, and Steve Hepplestone have just published an article. The initial work was performed by Conor Price, Alex Petkov, Marcus Carr and Jason Hale during their Masters Physics course at the University of Exeter, with it then being expanded upon by Conor, Steve and Ned. In […]

The Fundamental Mechanism Behind Colossal Permittivity in Oxides

Ned Taylor, Frank Davies, Shane Davies, Conor Price, and Steve Hepplestone have published an article describing the atomic-scale mechanism that gives rise to colossal permittivity within samples of CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO). This work was conducted at the University of Exeter during Ned, Frank, Shane and Conor’s PhDs. For two decades, experimental samples of CCTO have shown […]
