Researcher Profiles and Publications

Dr. Jae Sung Yun (University of New South Wales) - Engineering - Energy Engineering





Dr. Jae Sung Yun is currently a lecturer at the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) at the University of New South Wales, Australia. He earned his Bachelor of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Yonsei University, Korea, in 2008 and Master of philosophy in MSE at the University of New South Wales in 2010. Afterwards, he completed his PhD study on fabrication and characterization of polycrystalline Si thin-film solar cells in SPREE under the supervision of Professor Martin A. Green in 2014. Following that he joined perovskite solar cell group in the same department as a postdoctoral fellow until 2017. In 2018, he received Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics fellowship.

Field of study: Organic, inorganic, and hybrid PV materials, indoor solar cells, PV device fabrication and characterisations.

Research interests: His current research focuses on functional nanoscale imaging of defects such as grain boundaries and domain walls in various types of photovoltaic materials, discovering and characterizing nanoscale charge transport properties. For this purpose, he  developed and employed various scanning probe microscope techniques such as Kelvin probe force microscopy, conductive atomic force microscopy, and piezoelectric force microscopy.

Connection with Australia: I received Korea-Australia collaboration grant from KIAT in 2018 on development of indoor solar cells and I’m also involved in Korea-Australia research collaboration initiative grant from NRF in 2018 on nanoscale characterisation of functional materials.
