Professor Bram Hoex research group is at the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney. Photovoltaic research at UNSW started in the early 1970s when Prof Martin Green established his research group focussing on high-efficiency silicon solar cells. Currently, SPREE has over 200 researchers and covers a wide range of topics ranging from commercial and blue-sky photovoltaics to energy markets. SPREE has both state-of-the-art academic research labs as well as a research and development pilot line named the Solar Industrial Research Facility (SIRF). Prof Hoex’s research focusses on the development of novel nanoscale thin films which can be used to increase the energy conversion efficiency of a wide range of solar cell technologies ranging from commercial silicon to next-generation tandem solar cells. His group also has a strong focus on advanced metrology to study material growth, material properties, and solar cell device performance.
