  • optimization and electrochemical performance of stainless steel based DSC

Speaker Biography (Janne Halme)

Janne Halme studied Engineering Physics and Mathematics at the Helsinki University of Technology (TKK), Finland, where he obtained M.Sc. (Tech.) degree in 2002. His M.Sc. thesis presenting a technical review and preliminary tests on dye-sensitized nanostructured and organic photovoltaic cells initiated the DSC research at TKK. His Doctor of Tech. research at TKK focused in the development of dye solar cells on alternative substrates and quantitative assessment of their performance limiting factors. His expertise involves fundamental DSC device physics and electrochemistry, electron transport in nanostructured materials, electrochemical and optoelectric impedance spectroscopy, optical modeling, new device concepts, and low-temperature processing of nanoporous electrode films for flexible DSC.
