Thanh-Tuân BUI

(36 yo), Associate professor at LPPI (CY) since 2013.

Research Topics: His research focus on the development of organic materials for energy conversion. The main interest is charge transport materials for organic and hybrid solar cells with emphasis on device performance and long term operation stability (solid-state dye sensitized solar cells, perovskite solar cells and organic photovoltaics). Other interests are electron donor and acceptor materials for the active layer of organic photovoltaics, interfacial materials and dopants for perovskite solar cells, and Visible and NIR photo-initiator for photo-polymerization process.
