Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Optics
  • Semiconductor
  • Composite material

His primary scientific interests are in Optoelectronics, Silicon, Amorphous silicon, Solar cell and Polymer solar cell. His Optoelectronics study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Optics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Photovoltaics, Amorphous solid, Thin film, Nanocrystalline silicon and Tandem.

As a part of the same scientific study, Christophe Ballif usually deals with the Thin film, concentrating on Chemical vapor deposition and frequently concerns with Crystallite. Sheet resistance is closely connected to Transparent conducting film in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Solar cell. His work carried out in the field of Heterojunction brings together such families of science as Passivation and Doping.

His most cited work include:

  • Organometallic Halide Perovskites: Sharp Optical Absorption Edge and Its Relation to Photovoltaic Performance (1270 citations)
  • High-efficiency Silicon Heterojunction Solar Cells: A Review (501 citations)
  • Fully textured monolithic perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells with 25.2% power conversion efficiency. (499 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Christophe Ballif mostly deals with Optoelectronics, Silicon, Amorphous silicon, Thin film and Solar cell. His research combines Optics and Optoelectronics. His research investigates the connection between Optics and topics such as Photovoltaic system that intersect with issues in Composite material and Perovskite.

He combines subjects such as Wafer, Chemical vapor deposition, Amorphous solid, Passivation and Micromorph with his study of Silicon. His work in Thin film tackles topics such as Analytical chemistry which are related to areas like Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The various areas that Christophe Ballif examines in his Solar cell study include Open-circuit voltage, Transparent conducting film and Indium tin oxide.

  • Amorphous silicon (23.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Optoelectronics (61.05%)
  • Silicon (44.19%)
  • Crystalline silicon (16.72%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Optoelectronics, Silicon, Crystalline silicon, Passivation and Photovoltaic system. Many of his studies on Optoelectronics involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Amorphous silicon. His Silicon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Equivalent series resistance, Energy conversion efficiency, Perovskite, Dopant and Band gap.

Christophe Ballif has researched Perovskite in several fields, including Halide, Tandem, Monocrystalline silicon and Optics. Christophe Ballif works mostly in the field of Crystalline silicon, limiting it down to topics relating to Photovoltaics and, in certain cases, Engineering physics and Nanotechnology, as a part of the same area of interest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Composite number, Composite material and Environmental economics in addition to Photovoltaic system.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fully textured monolithic perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells with 25.2% power conversion efficiency. (499 citations)
  • Perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells: marriage of convenience or true love story? - An overview (137 citations)
  • Improved Optics in Monolithic Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells with a Nanocrystalline Silicon Recombination Junction (86 citations)
