Expérience académique/ Academic background: Chercheur, solide expérience dans le domaine de la chimie-physique et de la chimie théorique en particulier. Recherches ciblées actuellement dans le domaine photovoltaïque de 3ème géneration, impliquant l'utilisation de colorants organiques sans métaux lourds. Mise en place d'un modèle théorique autorisant une étude plus complète des différents paramètres clés qui définissent le fonctionnement d'une cellule de 3ème génération. / The technology to convert sunlight into electric current by employing organic photovoltaic systems has been an issue of an intensive research over the last two decades and nowadays receives an increasing industrial interest. Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) provide a technically and economically credible alternative to the present well-known p-n junction or thin film photovoltaic devices. In this project, we review the basic concepts of DSSCs and we set up a theoretical approach aiming at optimizing DSSC's properties. This project deals with the several of the controversial and emerging issues in this field, as well.
