Juan-Pablo Correa-Baena joined Georgia Tech in the Spring of 2019. His group focuses on the understanding and control of electronic dynamics at the nanoscale for low-cost semiconductors, such as halide perovskites and other materials. In particular, his group works on solar cell and light emitting diode applications.
Juan-Pablo received his PhD from the University of Connecticut, where he studied metal oxide aerogels as porous conductive electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells, funded by two National Science Foundation fellowships. His work as a postdoctoral fellow at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne focused on understanding of fundamental questions regarding band alignment at interfaces and their influence on performance in perovskite solar cells. His work at MIT shed light onto minority phase formation and elemental distribution in complex, multi-element halide perovskites, which determine the efficiency of the solar cells. His contributions have ultimately helped boost the efficiencies of perovskite solar cells above 23%.
Juan-Pablo has published many papers in the solar cell field and some of the most impactful work in perovskite solar cell research in the journals Science, Energy and Environmental Science, Advanced Materials, and Nature Energy, among others.
Juan-Pablo’s group focuses on the understanding and control of low-cost semiconductor electronic dynamics at the nanoscale, particularly in solar cell and light emitting diode applications. His group develops advanced deposition and characterization techniques with emphasis on the nanoscale. Low-cost equipment and high throughput materials are at the center of the group’s efforts, as well as synchrotron-based mapping and imaging approaches.
