D.A. Medvedev fabricates perovskite film according to technology developed in the laboratory

In 2019, the 150th anniversary of the discovery of Periodic law of chemical elements by D.I.Mendeleev, and the year is offilically declared by UNESCO as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. Throughout the year, activities dedicated to this event will take place all over the world.

On January 29, at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, and a week later, on February 6, at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow the opening ceremony of the year was held with the participation of the Russian Minister of Science and Higher Education M.M. Kotyukov, President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Academician A.M. Sergeev, Rector of Moscow State University Academician V.A. Sadovnichy and the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation D.A. Medvedev. Students and employees of the Laboratory of New Materials for Solar Energetics organized an interactive experimental exhibition “Laboratory” dedicated to the application of various chemical elements in chemistry and materials science.

Jr. researcher Aleksei Grishko, jr. researcher Andrey Petrov, and head of the laboratory Alexey Tarasov at the conference PSCO-2018 (Lausanne, Switzerland)

Head of the laboratory Alexey Tarasov, jr. researcher Alexey Grishko and jr. researcher Andrey Petrov participated in the largest international conference on perovskite photovoltaics – PSCO-2018 (Lausanne, Switzerland), which took place from October 30th to November 2nd, where they presented some recent results of the laboratory in oral and two poster presentations.

Many conference participants are well acquainted with the laboratory’s publications on reactive polyiodide melts and perovskite adducts with aprotic solvents and the new data presented drew great attention. Junior researcher Aleksei Grishko was awarded a diploma of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A RSC for the best poster.

Students of the laboratory won prizes at the conferences!

Students of the laboratory showed outstanding results at the All-Russian conference Lomonosov-2018 in the section "Fundamental Materials Science":

Bachelor students:
Andrei Tutantsev (3rd year bachelor student) - II degree diploma
Nikita Stepanov (2nd year) - III degree diploma
Alexander Sudakov (1st year) - III degree diploma

Master and PhD Students:
Aleksei Grishko (1st year PhD student) - I degree diploma

Pavel Rudnev (1st year master student) - III degree diploma

In addition, Yulia Sokolova was awarded the 1st degree diploma in the competition of student works at the VIII Conference of Young Scientists on General and Inorganic Chemistry, conducted during the same days by S.N. Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences. Congratulations!

Head of the laboratory A.B. Tarasov presents a talk on perovskite photovoltaics at the forum 'COP23 Renewable Energy Day'

On November 12, an international forum dedicated to renewable energy sources 'COP23 Renewable Energy Day' took place in Bonn, held by the International Renewable Energy Agency - IRENA.

Among the invited speakers of the forum the academic community of Russia was presented the Laboratory of new materials for solar energy. Participants of the forum with great interest took the report on the prospects of perovskite solar energy and breakthrough work in this area conducted at Moscow State University.
