Doctor Natalie Holmes, organic electronics researcher at the University of Newcastle in Australia, is currently spending two months at Karlstad University as a visiting researcher. The goal is to publish a peer reviewed article on green solvent processing of polymeric solar cells, that is, solar cells made of organic material.
- I arrived at Karlstad University in early May and we have a very focused research goal to achieve before the end of June when I travel back to Australia, says Natalie Holmes. Here in Karlstad, there is research on organic solar cells, which is in agreement with my research interest, which also spans organic electronic sensor technology. My doctoral education at the University of Newcastle was funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and that was when I entered this particular field of research.
