Amanz Azaden

Imperial College London


Research Project: Functional characterization of lead-free hybrid perovskite materials and solar cells
Saif Haque (ICL), Robert Palgrave (UCL)

Amanz graduated from Imperial College London with an integrated MEng in Materials Science and Engineering. His final year project involved fabricating and characterising perovskite solar cells (PSCs) with a low grain boundary density. He spent some time in the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology as a researcher studying hole transport materials in PSCs, and as a teaching assistant. Following his graduation, Amanz worked in the thin-film deposition industry to gain experience in industrial device fabrication. Amanz is passionate about photovoltaics and the link between morphology and device performance. His PhD project involves structurally and electronically characterising Sn PSCs.
