Nattestad, Andrew Dr.

Senior Research Fellow

  • Australian Institute for Innovative Materials
  • Intelligent Polymer Research Institute

Research Overview


  • Andrew's research focuses heavily on the conversion of light energy into other forms. This includes the development of novel solar cell architectures, combining low cost technologies such as Dye-sensitised Solar Cells and Organic PV with ‘third generation’ concepts, such as photon up-conversion and tandem architectures. He is also involved developments of various photocatalytic systems, including water purification, water splitting as well as CO2 and N2 reduction.
