Ravi Misra is a Research Fellow at ATI-Physics and working in an exciting collaborative project with Space Power Limited under the aegis of Space Research and Innovation Network for Technology (SPRINT), envisioning wireless power transfer to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. Prior to which, he contributed to EU Horizon 2020 grants CORNET (2018-2021), and MUSICODE (2020-2021) as a key researcher. Dr Misra received his PhD (2008-2011) from Defence Laboratory (DRDO)-JNV University Jodhpur (India), and then moved to Israel as recipient of a prestigious Postdoctoral Fellowship (2013-15) of Blaustein Institute for Scientific Cooperation (BCSC). Continuing his research, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel (2015-17) and as a Researcher, Yonsei University, Seoul, Republic of Korea (2017-18). He has vast experience in fabricating different architectures of perovskite and organic photovoltaics (PPVs & OPVs) and accelerated stability assessment of these materials and devices under concentrated sunlight to understand their degradation pathways. His research interests include wireless energy transfer to the LEO satellites, developing long lasting high efficiency PVs, and working towards achieving the goals of laboratory to industrial scale fabrication (Lab-to-Fab) of these emerging photovoltaics.
Affiliations and memberships
Dr Misra's current research at ATI-Physics is focused on wireless energy transfer to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, extensive characterization of different types of photovoltaic devices, upscaling of organic and perovskite-based photovoltaics (OPVs & PPVs) through sheet-to-sheet (S2S) deposition using slot-die coating technique. His research is also directed towards the development of non-fullerene acceptor (NFA) based binary and ternary OPV devices. Investigation of parallel charge generation and energy transfer in high performance (12% efficient) NFA containing binary and ternary devices system is one of his recent accomplishments, and upscaling of these devices towards lab-scale module level is now in focus.
