|We are pleased to announce that Professor Henry Snaith, of the Clarendon Laboratory at Oxford University and Energy and Environmental Science Advisory Board member, has been elected a fellow of the Royal Society. Fellows of the Royal Society are elected for life through a peer review process on the basis of excellence in science and we would like to congratulate Henry on this achievement.
As head of the Photovolatic and Optoelectronic Device Group, Henry leads an interdisciplinary research team which focusses on optoelectronic materials synthesis, device development and characterisation with the primary focus of developing low cost photovoltaic concepts. Henry has pioneered the development of hybrid materials for energy and photovoltaics and the recent discovery of highly efficient perovskite solar cells has received much attention by the academic community and by industry as a low-cost alternative to silicon photovoltaics.
