Research activities

Research activities of Fabrice Goubard are focused on the elaboration of functional hybrid nanomaterials for different applications. In photovoltaic domain, his study concerns mainly both stretchable solar cells and n-p interface between a mesoporous metal oxide and a conjugated polymer in DSSC and perovskite solar cells. He is the co-author of 86 publications, 1 patent and two book chapters and has given 15 invited lectures along with more than 35 oral and poster presentations in International Scientific Conferences. He is currently director of 4 on going doctoral thesis K Chaihan (Chang Mai University, Thailand), T. de Monfreid (ANR project), E. Dauzon (KAUST, Saudi Arabia) and L. Taussing (NCSU,United States).

He is in close collaboration with :

  • Pr. J Grazivilecius, (Lituania)( FP7-REGPOT project),
