Dr Mojtaba Abdi-Jalebi is a University Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Energy Materials in the Institute for Materials Discovery, the faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University College London (UCL). He is also a Research Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge. He graduated from Sharif University of Technology in 2012 with a BSc (Materials Science and Engineering) and he received his MSc in Materials Science and Engineering in 2014 from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. He completed his PhD in Physics at Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, receiving the 2018 Semiconductor Physics Thesis Prize from Institute of Physics. From 2018-2020, he was a Junior Research Fellow at Cambridge University and Wolfson College, Cambridge, where he set up a spin-out company to develop energy harvesting devices based on emerging semiconductors. Mojtaba established his research group in UCL in 2020, with a focus on material and electronic properties of emerging semiconductors including halide perovskites, small molecules and organic semiconductors for low-cost electronics applications including solar-photovoltaics and lighting. His research aims to develop and incorporate new inexpensive materials in optoelectronic devices to alter the energy landscape by reducing the cost of both energy production and consumption.

Research Summary

Mojtaba’s research focuses on the optical and electronic properties of advanced functional materials particularly emerging semiconductors including metal halide perovskites, nanostructured metal oxides and other organic semiconductors and incorporating them in optoelectronic devices such as solar photovoltaics (PV), photodetectors and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). He investigates novel materials and device photophysics via spectroscopy as a powerful tool to understand their characteristics in different length and time scales, unveil the origin of instability and maximize the output of the optoelectronic devices.  Mojtaba is also involved in exploitation of the academic research into actual products and bridging the gap between fundamental science and technology commercialization. He has active industrial collaborations for technology transfer into multiple emerging markets including photovoltaics, the Internet of things (IoT) and consumer electronics.
