Research Interests

My primary research interests are investigating perovskite properties at nanoscale. To date, the power conversion efficiency (PCE) of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) has exceeded over 25%. However, PSCs are vulnerable to internal and external strains because of the intrinsic soft nature of perovskite, which hinders the commercialisation of PSCs. In addition, it has been revealed that locally inhomogeneous chemical composition or phases in perovskites can significantly contribute to PSCs’ performance and stability. This brings the importance of understanding nanoscale behaviour in perovskite to achieve high PSCs with long-term stability. Hence, I focus on investigating the fundamental correlation between local properties in perovskite and device performance by using a nanoprobe beamline. I also develop adequate procedures to measure operational devices with beamline. Last, by using optimised methods, I perform operando studies on perovskite-based optoelectronic devices.


Eunyoung Choi studied for her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Martin Green and Dr. Jae Sung Yun at the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW). During her PhD journey at UNSW, she focused on investigating nanoscale optoelectronic properties of kesterite and perovskite solar cells by using advanced scanning probe microscopy. Now she works as a postdoctoral research associate at Beamline 14, Diamond Light Source Ltd., and is involved in Sam Stranks group at the University of Cambridge after Jan. 2023. She is exploring the correlation between nanoscale strains in perovskite materials and perovskite solar cells (PSCs) and is conducting an operando study in PSCs by using synchrotron X-ray techniques.
