Fully Funded Research Scholarships at Swansea University in UK

Power Roll Ltd is a technology development company based in the North East of England. It is developing an innovative thin-film photovoltaic (PV) technology that is based on a 3D patterned substrate suitable for high throughput roll-to-roll (R2R) manufacturing. As part of its scale-up development, it is looking to develop R2R deposition of Perovskite into its patented architecture. PRL technology has been demonstrated at +10% using spin-coated perovskite into its flexible mini-module platform but is now in the process of scaling all process parameters to R2R.
The project will be located within SPECIFIC as part of Professor Trystan Watson’s research group. SPECIFIC is a National Innovation and Knowledge Centre led by Swansea University, working collaboratively with Universities across the UK. SPECIFIC has significant capability and expertise across its team and facilities. Capabilities at SPECIFIC relate to the printing, coating, and lifetime testing of functional materials and the development of enabling technologies that support the transition from the laboratory bench to the factory floor.

The SPECIFIC PV scale-up and stability research activity is currently carried out at Swansea University’s new Bay Campus facility and is housed in purpose-built facilities which include a new stability testing and cleanroom printing facility.




The scholarship covers the full cost of UK/EU tuition fees, plus a stipend of £20,000 p.a. for a period of four years.
