Dr. Aydın heads his research group at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU Munich), Chemistry Department, which is focusing on "developing realistic high-efficiency photovoltaic technologies for the dynamically changing needs of humankind." Erkan Aydın earned his PhD (2016) degree from the Micro and Nanotechnology Program at TOBB University of Economics and Technology, Ankara, Türkiye. Since 2016, he has been continuing his postdoctoral research at the KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology) campus in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Dr. Aydın has managed projects in the perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells field as an experienced research scientist since 2020. Dr. Aydın's recent research activities lie in developing high-efficiency and realistic single-junction perovskite and perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells toward market preparedness from multiple aspects such as novel device architectures, fabrication methods, performance enhancements, scaling-up, and long-term stability assessments. Dr. Aydın was entitled to receive an ERC Starting Grant in 2022 with the INPERSPACE Project. With this project, his team will develop space-grade perovskite-based tandem solar cells for the new space era that we entered after the recent privatization of the space industry, as well as realistic and high-efficiency perovskite-based tandem solar cells for Earth applications.
