Personal profile

Biography

David Payne has a background in photonics and electronics and his primary field of expertise is photovoltaics (PV), with a view towards lowering the cost and increasing the efficiency of solar cells to accelerate the uptake of sustainable and clean energy production. His current primary project involves working closely with solar cell manufacturers to better understand and optimise a new type of industrially applicable ‘black silicon’ texturing technique which not only enables lower cost substrate materials but can also lead to improved solar cell efficiencies through superior optics.


His core research interests are:

  • Photovoltaic devices
  • Nanophotonics and light-trapping
  • Advanced optical characterisation and modelling
  • Image processing and research software development
