Short Bio

Dr. Natalia Maticiuc received her bachelor's (2008) and master's (2010) degrees in physics from the State University of Moldova, after which she obtained a PhD in chemistry and materials technology from Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia) in 2015, where she studied chalcogenide thin films for photovoltaic applications in CdTe and kesterite solar cells. Since 2017, Dr. Maticiuc is at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (Germany) focusing on CIGSe absorber surface analysis and implementation of inorganic HTMs in perovskite-CIGSe tandem devices. Since 2021 she is actively involved in coordination of VIPERLAB project.

Modelling, high performance computing and efficient access to data sets based on data reported in the literature and experimental work are important tools to accelerate research in the field of photovoltaic perovskite, and beyond. With this workshop VIPERLAB presents the importance of these topics for materials science technology and how the 4 virtual infrastructures of Viperlab project  can support researchers from academy'and industry, with free access to their computing, modeling tools and the available datasets.

H2020 VIPERLAB Project offers free access to the state-of-the-art perovskite EU infrastructures that cover the whole innovation/value chain from material preparation to characterization of perovskite devices and modules. Today we present two very relevant VIPRLAB research Infastructures:   FRAUNHOFER Solar Cell Manufacturing & Characterization & EPFL/CSEM – PV lab/PV Center & PSK/SI Tandem processing.

We present other two VIPERLAB Research Infrastructures. The first, CHOSE consists of two main infrastructures: the CHOSE@ROME, is located on the campus of the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy), and focuses on technological manufacturing processes and device characterization. CHOSE@TURIN, is an infrastructure associated with the University of Turin (Italy) focused on the development of materials.  The secon, AIT Viperlab Reseach infrastructures focusses on characterization and reliability tools for the accreditation tests of PV modules, and tools for PV deposition, characterization/reliability and development of thin film coatings.

The stability of perovskite devices is a key point should be addressed to achieve commercialisation. The key factors influencing the stability of the devices are the exposure to oxygen and moisture, UV light, solution processing and thermal effects. Encapsulation and standard testing protocols are required to check and improve stability. The two presented infrastructures offer state of the art equipment for the Perovskite Stability testing of materials and devices. 

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N° 101006715
