Dr Duong’s research focuses on perovskite solar cells, perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells, solar to hydrogen production, and semiconductor gas sensors.

More information on the ANU Perovskite group research can be found on their website.


The Duong completed his BS degree in Electrical Engineering in Oregon, United States. He worked for Intel for three years as a Process/Equipment Engineer. He obtained his PhD in Electrical Engineer at the Australian National University in 2017. During his PhD, The Duong was able to produce a perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell with a record efficiency of 26.4%, which has been highlighted in many media publications. After completing his PhD. The Duong was awarded two competitive Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) Postdoc Fellowship grants to develop high efficiency perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells. He also researches solar to hydrogen production and semiconductor gas sensors.
