Silicon and perovskite solar cell design, fabrication, characterisation, simulation, and more.


Dr Liang’s current projects include an investigation of carbon-based electrodes as an alternative to metal. Carbon-based electrodes have been reported to be chemically stable in perovskite solar cells. Silver used in commercial silicon solar cells is relatively expensive – accounting for 10% of current PV module costs.


Dr Liang has been a Research Fellow at ANU since 2018. Before this, he held a Postdoctoral Researcher position at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, from 2015-2017. Dr Liang completed his PhD at ANU in 2014, during which he also held the position of ALD Facility Coordinator, which involved assisting with the assembly and commissioning of newly purchased ALD equipment, maintaining the system, developing new methods, troubleshooting, and documenting in compliance with ACT and ANU WHS requirements. Dr Liang completed his Bachelor and Masters degrees at Northeastern University.
