AREAS OF EXPERTISE
- Roll-to-roll processing of polymer solar cells and printed organic electronics
- Ink formulation for polymer solar cells
- Water soluble polymers
- Health and safety representative
Roar R. Søndergaard’s area of expertise includes ink formulation for polymer solar cells, and roll-to-roll processing of polymer solar cells and printed organic electronics in general (counting, for instance, thermoelectrics, and electrochromics). He has also done a lot of research on the synthesis of water soluble polymers as part of the Solar Energy Section’s effort to develop environmentally friendly solar cells. Much of his current work focuses on improving polymer solar cell parameters such as materials cost, efficiency, stability and environmental sustainability through optimized roll-to-roll processing and improved ink formulations. Roar R. Søndergaard is also health and safety representative at the Solar Energy Section.
