Research Interests

Azhar Fakharuddin obtained a PhD in Advanced Materials from University Malaysia Pahang where he worked on improving charge collection efficiency in dye-sensitized solar cells. He then joined the University of Konstanz, Germany as Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow to work on interfaces and processes in perovskite/organic solar cells. He subsequently moved to imec, Belgium to work on perovskite light emitting diodes. Now at University of Konstanz, his current research focuses on novel materials and processes for high efficiency optoelectronic devices, mainly, solar cells and light emitting diodes and their related device physics.
