Juan Bisquert (Düsseldorf, 1962), is a physicist known for his contributions to materials and devices for sustainable energy production. He grew up in Dénia, and he is a professor at Universitat Jaume I de Castelló. His works on solar cells relate physical principles and modelling of electronic and ionic processes to the interpretation of measurement techniques for the photovoltaic operation. He is the author of more than 350 publications and three books.

Research activity

At Universitat Jaume I he is the funding director of INAM[1] (Institute of Advanced Materials), that develops research on materials, nanostructures and devices for the production of clean energy.[2]

He published 350 papers in scientific journals.[3] He has cited more than 20,000 times in scientific journals.[4][5] In 2014, 2015 y 2016 he appeared in the list "ISI Highly Cited Researchers"

He wrote a series of books including the "Nanostructured Energy Devices" collection (1. Equilibrium Concepts and Kinetics,[6] 2. Foundations of Carrier Transport[7] and 3. Physics of Solar Cells: Perovskites, Organics, and Photovoltaics Fundamentals[8]). He edited the monography Photoelectrochemical Solar Fuel Production: From Basic Principles to Advanced Devices".[9]

He is a Senior Editor of the "Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters"[10] and member of Advisory Board of: ‒ "Energy and Environmental Science", ‒ Sustainable Energy and Fuels ‒ "ChemElectroChem" ‒ "South Korean Journal of Electrochemical Science and Technology".

Since 2008 he is the president of the Society for Nanomolecular Photovoltaics (SEFIN).[11] Since 2016 he is president of Fundació Scito. He created nanoGe conferences.

He did the work of the doctoral thesis in the field of mathematical physics, on problems of algebraic quantization. His research work takes place in a multidisciplinary area that covers hybrid and organic nanotechnology solar cells as well as other functional devices of advanced materials, including perovskite solar cell and the production of semiconductor fuel from sunlight.[12][13] Bisquert has developed the application of measurement techniques and physical modelling that relate the operation of the photovoltaic devices to the elementary electronic stages that take place in the nanoscale dimension.[14] For example, one of the main contributions of Professor Juan Bisquert has been to define and demonstrate the relevance of the concept of Chemical Capacitance in nanostructured semiconductor devices, especially solar cells and photovoltaic devices.
