Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR)
Aug 16 @ 9:00 am – Aug 20 @ 5:30 pm

The main objectives of this conference are to:

  • Provide a dynamic forum of exchange on international issues vital to Asia
  • Foster long-term relationships among young leaders from around the globe
  • Connect talented delegates with some of today’s leaders in academia, business and government.

The event will take place in the capital of Kazakhstan Nur-Sultan (former Astana), at Nazarbayev University on August 16th-20th, 2019. Students will have an outstanding opportunity to attend the world speakers series (last year, guests of HPAIR were Ban Ki-moon, Twitter, Lenovo and other world-renowned company leaders), to get inspired, and make business and friendship networking.

Aug 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Guest lecture by  by Dr. A. B. Djurišić (Univ. of Hong Kong).

Topic: Stability of halide perovskite materials and devices

Date: August 19, Monday

Time: 10.00 am

Venue: block C4  room №266/268

Abstract:  Organic-inorganic lead halide perovskites have been attracting increasing attention for solar cell applications due to their rapid progress to high efficiency (over 24%) devices. However, they also have significant drawbacks, namely high sensitivity to processing conditions and inferior stability with exposure to humidity, illumination, and elevated temperature. In this talk, the stability of the perovskite films and devices will be extensively discussed. This will include perovskite film composition, morphology, deposition method, as well as device architecture and device encapsulation for solar cells.

Biography: Prof. A. B. Djurišić obtained her PhD degree in electrical engineering form the School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade (now Serbia) in 1997. She joined the Dept. of Physics at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2003. Her research interests include nanomaterials, wide-bandgap semiconductors, photocatalysis,  optoelectronic devices., halide perovskite materials and devices.
