    Research on more efficient organic solar cells

    The research on organic solar cells at Karlstad University takes another step forward, thanks to a research grant from the Swedish Research Council.

    - We are going to study the molecular interactions between the electron donating and the electron accepting molecules, says Ellen Moons, Professor of Physics and leader for the research project. We believe that this interaction is crucial for both the structure formation and charge transfer at the interface between donor and acceptor, and that it affects the efficiency of the solar cells.

    The importance of cooperation when managing customer complaints

    In his doctoral thesis, Proactivity in Service Failure and Service Recovery, Jasenko Arsenovic has focused on the process of managing customer complaints.

    Taking care of your customers is at the core of the retail business. A greeting or just a friendly smile can make people open their wallets a little bit more. The first 30 seconds in a store is crucial for the customer’s impression of the place. But it is possible to rectify a bad first impression.

    Solar cell research with a new direction

    Over the last decade, perovskites have received much attention in solar cell research all over the world. Perovskite solar cells combine the benefits of the high performance of conventional silicon solar cells and the low cost of polymer-based solar cells. It sounds like a winner, but there is still much research to be made before it is possible to produce perovskite solar cells commercially.

    - Perovskite has a significant potential as a photovoltaic material with high power conversion efficiencies, says Ellen Moons, professor of Physics who is heading the research.
