  Dr. Timothy Kelly
Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair in Photovoltaics

Research in the Kelly group focuses on the development of high efficiency organic solar cells. We study both bulk heterojunction and dye sensitized solar cells, and use a combination of organic and inorganic synthesis, nanotechnology and photophysics to more efficiently absorb light and convert it into electrical energy.

Current research projects focus on the synthesis of new organic semiconductors, polymers and dyes, and the development of plasmon-enhanced solar cells through the use of anisotropic metal nanoparticles.
