Hyderabad: Dr Murali Banavoth, Assistant Professor at School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad (UoH) bagged the international project worth (Rs59 lakh) from Indo-Korean Joint Programme of Cooperation in Science and Technology. He is currently aiming to accomplish ambient stable, highly efficient, technologically important and commercially viable perovskite single crystal solar cell at an affordable cost.
Recently Dr Banavoth has also been bestowed with a prestigious young scientist award from International society for Energy, Environment and Sustainability on Jan 1. Earlier in July 2017, he was presented the young scientist award at second BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) meeting at Hangzhou, China.
Through this joint project on solar energy ‘Single Crystal Perovskites: Telescoping Syntheses and its Goldilocks for High Efficiency Solar Cells’, Dr Murali Banavoth is collaborating with one of the leading pioneers in Solar Cell research, Prof Sang II Seok from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Ulsan, South Korea. The Department of Science and Technology (DST) and Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP) of the Republic of Korea are the key agencies funding the project.
