Darius Kuciauskas

Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile

Dr. Kuciauskas is a senior scientist in a Spectroscopy and Photoscience group, where he works on electro-optical characterization of photovoltaic (PV) and electronic materials and devices. His laboratory includes two femtosecond laser systems, low-temperature and time-resolved photoluminescence spectrometers, and a microscope for time-resolved correlative optical measurements. Research is supported by the DOE EERE SunShot projects on increasing the efficiency and reliability of PV solar cells. We actively collaborate within NREL, with university PV groups and the PV industry. Dr. Kuciauskas has authored or co-authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in applied physics, materials science, photovoltaics, and physical chemistry.
