Amran Al-Ashouri studied Physics in Duisburg and obtained his PhD from TU Berlin/Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin on optimizing highly efficient perovskite solar cells. He has established a new class of charge-selective layers that enabled four world-record efficiency perovskite-based solar cells and became a co-founder of the HZB spin-off Quantum Yield Berlin that accelerates solar cell research worldwide. For this work, he was awarded the Helmholtz Doctoral Award and the Adlershof Dissertation Award in 2021. The research on cheap, high-throughput perovskite solar cells in Berlin has increasingly gained momentum with a large number of grants, new laboratories and industrial collaborations, heralding the upcoming revolution in photovoltaic industry.
