Professor Snaith’s research is focused on developing novel materials; the physics and technology for low cost photovoltaic concepts.
In 2012, he published his breakthrough discovery of high efficiency solid-state photovoltaics from organic-inorganic metal halide perovskites. Snaith’s seminal work on these materials was deemed one of the top ten breakthroughs of the year by Science magazine; the following year he was named one of ten people who mattered by Nature magazine. All IP generated from the research group on perovskite solar cells has been exclusively licenced to Oxford PV.
The group of close to 30 scientists continue to push forward the frontiers of perovskite solar cell research, with regular generation of new IP and academic publications.

Beyond close collaboration with the University of Oxford team, we are actively pursuing collaborations with leading academics in the US, Europe and Asia.
The Oxford PV internal research and development is dedicated to enhancing the stability of the perovskite solar cell technology, to become compatible with 25 year operational lifetimes at high efficiency. The work is focused on both new chemistries for enhanced stability and enhanced efficiencies, and also on solar cell and module processing for enabling large area high yield manufacturing.
