Electrical Characterization

In house current-voltage and capacitance-voltage measurements are used to characterize our devices' photovoltaic properties along with a calibrated solar simulator. JV curves are a standard method of evaluating device performance, both in the dark and under illumination.

Our lab is capable of performing all electrical characterization of devices both in air and in the nitrogen environment of the glovebox. With these results we're able to evaluate the basic diode properties as well as photovoltaic abilities of our devices.

In addition to JV and CV measurements, transistor data helps extract mobility information. This, along with Hall effect data from our cryostat's superconducting magnet, leads to a more complete understanding of electronic transport within our samples.
