Sci Talk Topic: Molecular Engineering of Organic Semiconductor Materials for Applications in Emerging Solar Cells​​

Abstract: In this talk, firstly, I will briefly summarize our research interests and results. I will then focus on the two main topics in the field of solar energy conversion devices, namely dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and perovskite solar cells (PSCs). In DSSCs, an improvement of the performance of the organic dyes as sensitizers for DSSCs by fine-tuning the dye chemical structures will be presented. A series of organic push-pull molecules with different molecular configurations of the donor (D)-π-acceptor (A), D-D-π-A, D(dendron)-π-A, D-π-A-π-A, D-π(D)-A, D-π-A-π(D)-A bearing triarylamine, carbazole, and carbazole dendrons as D moieties have been designed, synthesized and investigated. The relationships between the structure of these dyes and properties and cell performances will be drawn and discussed. Some of these dyes show power conversion efficiencies surpass that of the Ru-based device measured under similar conditions, indicating a high potential candidate for commercial use. In PSCs, the study and development of novel materials (perovskite and hole-transporting material (HTM)) that can improve efficiency, stability, and upscaling of PSCs will be illustrated. Examples of HTMs will be discussed in terms of the structure-property relationships, with particular attention to the molecular design that affects the device performance. The methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3)-based inverted PSC utilized the developed HTM layer achieves PCE of >20% with hysteresis-free and long-term stability. The fabrication of inverted PSC modules (10 x 10 cm2) will also be presented, and the PSC prototype at TRL 6 exhibits PCE of >16%.​

What is KVIS-ISF?

By Phakin Chonglerkngam and Kumkup Keeratisiwakul

KVIS International Science Fair (KVIS-ISF) is a science event is hosted annually by Kamnoetvidya Science Academy in Wangchan Valley, Rayong, Thailand. It is a forum for high-school scientist and researchers to exchange and share their innovations and knowledge.

KVIS-ISF started in 2018, becoming an inspirational and successful event allowing the event to continue annually, providing opportunities for young scientists eager to present their work. Various ideas have a significant influence on current global issues as a result of information from different fields of study.

This event is significantly beneficial in the academic aspect. It contributes participants to strengthen their primary knowledge and broaden their horizons to new perspectives in STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Additionally, KVIS-ISF prioritizes numerous fields, assisting participants in acquiring new skills in addition to their interests in expanding their knowledge. Not only academic, but KVIS-ISF also provides numerous opportunities to learn about different cultures from various countries and to appreciate the value of partnership across institutions to become future open-minded citizens.

This year, 39 high schools from 12 countries will participate, showcasing more than 70 projects. For the first time, KVIS-ISF will host the sessions feature professional guest speakers in each discipline to provide deep talks and allow participants to share and discuss with the guest speakers. Additionally, there are times for participants to enjoy various activities including icebreaking, cultural shows, and science activity that comes in the theme of ‘Escape Room’. Unfortunately, due to the Covid situation, the event will be held online but we encourage participants to fully participate in all activities to make it memorable as we did in the previous years.

Greeting with No Meeting

By Chayada Pakpoomkamonlert

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of communication has migrated to online platforms, making it much more difficult these days. The KVIS-Invitational Science Fair has been held for 5 years not just to showcase research from young scientists, but also to allow foreign peers to meet and discuss scientific ideas. However, with the current situation, to what extent can the online sessions of the 5th KVIS-ISF accomplish these key goals? We have fewer opportunities to converse, play, and connect with fellow student researchers.

Briefing and ice-breaking activities were conducted to give the participants a warm-up while getting to know each other. The briefing session started with beautiful and friendly smiles from the MCs, who then introduced a variety of activities happening during the KVIS-ISF, with the spectacular scenery of Wangchan Valley in the background.

In the final session of the first day, the energetic-and-enthusiastic ice-breaking activity, participants were able to tease their brain a little and meet new friends for the first time. Even though the puzzles were quite difficult, the participants had fun working together to find clues to complete their missions.

Opening Ceremony & Keynote Speaker

By Puthimet Kitjaruwankul

The opening ceremony of KVIS ISF 2022 began greatly with welcoming speeches from the chairperson of KVIS Governing Board, Dr. Pailin Chuchottaworn, and KVIS Principal, Dr. Thongchai Chewprecha. As a result of the covid-19 pandemic, many issues regarding sustainability have emerged, raising the overarching question of how we can continue to live while preserving the environment for future generations. Dr. Pailin stated his belief that science holds the key to this question, as he and Dr. Thongchai proudly announced the opening of the 5th KVIS ISF science fair under the theme of ‘Gen Z: Advancing Global Sustainability’. His expectation is that the event would unite scientists from across the world, foster friendships, and serve as a forum for the exchange of innovative ideas for global development. Theeradon Sakpetch, the student representative of KVIS, expressed his belief during his remarks that the next generation of scientists would need to collaborate to better tackle the world’s sustainability issues.

The theme ‘Gen Z: Advancing Global Sustainability’ shows that one way that science can help preserve the world's energy supply is through the notion of clean energy. One of the best examples is using solar cells, electric generators powered by sunlight, to generate power. As the photons supply energy to the atom in the depletion zone, one electron is transferred from the n-type side to the p-type making electron flow. On this occasion, it was honored to have Dr. Vinich Promarak, a Professor in Molecular Science and Engineering from VISTEC, speak about the topic of ‘Molecular Engineering of Organic Semiconductor Materials for Applications in Emerging Solar Cells’. Dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) and perovskite solar cell (PSC) were the two key topics Professor covered in this plenary talk. The concept behind these two solar cell is the organic material that can generate energy in the same manner as plant photosynthetic pigment. By fine-tuning the dye-sensitized solar cell, more electron flow can help improve its efficiency, while the development of new materials can improve the efficiency of the perovskite solar cell.

Sci-Talk

Insightful, direct, and engaging experiences of inquiry-based conversation in science concept”

KVIS-ISF sci talk is an activity that encourages participants to share and discuss various topics in mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, and biology. There are five rooms for this session; each room has a speaker who talks about an exciting topic in the field for15 minutes and leads a discussion with interested participants for 15 minutes.

Topics

1. Mathematics

By: Phatsakorn Ukanchanakitti

Topic: Mathematical legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan: The man who knew infinity

Speaker: Dr. Donny Passary

This interesting discussion on the "mathematical legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan: The man who knew infinity” was led by Dr. Donny Passary, an expert in number theory with well-known research is partition theory & q-series. He is currently an instructor at King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok.

Dr.Passary’s talk was about the work of Srinivasa Ramanujan, also known as “The man who knew infinity”, a brilliant Indian mathematician who had made one of the most important contributions in mathematics history. His famous research was in the field of number theory, particularly on partition theory, and his discoveries were related to ‘infinity’ like his nickname suggested. This talk revolved around his biography and interesting results from the well-known “Ramanujan’s lost notebook,” as well as their significance to modern mathematics, science and technology now a day.


2. Computer Science

By Phakin Chonglerkngam

Topic: Model-Centric vs. Data-Centric Machine Learning

Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sarana Nutanong

In the computer Science talk, Dr. Sarana Nutanong, a researcher from University of Melbourne, has led the discussion on Machine learning (ML). For the longest time, traditional Machine learning (ML) has been studied with the model-centric approach, but Dr. Nutanong explored deeper into the recent works using data centric approach of Machine Learning, and how both approaches differ. Preparing the data is an easy-yet-crucial process, and as a vital part of the pipeline, the data needs to be accurate to create an efficient model. Furthermore, Dr. Nutanong explained how data-centric AI tackled difficulties within the field of machine learning with its easier-to-model process and promising data quality, as well as how model-centric and data-centric efforts can synergize.


3. Physics

By: Kumkup Keeratisiwakul

Topic: Astronomy and Astrophysics

Speaker: Asst. Prof. Dr. Suraphong Yuma

In physics talk, the topic that was discussed was the introduction of astronomy and astrophysics by Asst. Prof. Dr.Suraphong Yuma of the department of Physics, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University, Thailand. His interests lie in Extragalactic astronomy, a field of study that involves everything beyond the Milky Way, and he has been working on the process of expelling hot gas off the galaxy. Dr.Yuma has gained lots of interesting experience while he was working in this field that he wants to share, from numerous observations, how to access telescopes, obstacles of observation, to data analysis. He also gave an insight into how astronomers work, along with three facts an astronomer must always consider: constant light speed, expanded universe, and light absorbent neutral hydrogen.


4. Chemistry

By Kittapas Kitsanadecha

Topic: Biodegradable polyesters: structural requirements and improvements

Speaker:Assoc. Prof. Dr. Khamphee Phomphrai

In the chemistry talk, Dr.Khamphee Phomphrai, a researcher from Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology (VISTEC), has led the discussion on how to reduce plastic waste via the development of biodegradable polymers. Nowadays, plastic waste is one of the major problems that causes global warming. It is predicted that in 2050, up to 1,124 tons of plastics will be produced, and managing the wastes through recycling can only takes care of less than 10% of the waste.

In Dr.Phomphrai’s lecture, he mentioned that “biodegradability of polymers does not depend on the origins, but the structures.” For example, polyethylene furanoate (PEF) is a novel type of polymer derived from sugar cane but it is non-degradable. Despite that, it could be an alternative to the present-day PET as it has better mechanical properties in tensile strength. Another interesting polymer is polylactide (PLA). It is a biodegradable plastic from the fermented lactic acid. PLA also has good tensile strength but could be broken easily.

Dr.Phomphrai also said that despite having these polymers, they could not replace all of the global plastics since some are needed to be maintained such as in electronic devices. He also mentioned about the conflict where the biodegradable polymers are weak for their bondings, but we want it to be strong for further usages. And yet the scientists have the key to solve that. Our participants said that this talk had a topic very close to us and helped pave the way for further research in the field.


5. Biology:

By Khanut Boonjong

Topic: Biology

Speaker:Prof. Dr. Pimchai Chaiyen

Bringing forth a strong experience in biotechnology and biomolecular science, Prof. Dr. Pimchai Chaiyen shared how she turned nature into innovation in the biology talk. Her works demonstrate the way in which the development in the most basic yet important process such as biocatalysis – the use of enzymes to boost chemical reactions – can contribute to the valuable and sustainable benefits to many industries, including medicine. Dr.Chaiyen intends to solve environmental concerns through an innovative and emerging field of biological science, particularly synthetic biology. Her projects focus on constructing engineered cells or new metabolic pathways beneficial in turning “Waste to Value” or “Trash to Treasure.” This includes transforming organic waste into alternative biofuel and thereby advocating for green energy and actions toward Sustainable Development Goals. This research also contributes to the circular economy, reducing waste to benefit farmers.

During the discussion session, Dr. Chaiyen gave insights on how to scale up scientific research to solve real-world business and social issues; interdisciplinary collaboration is needed to achieve practicality. She also suggested that one needs to focus on the pain point in order effectively help the users, because “to solve someone’s problem, it is important to listen to what they need.”


Enabling students to have such a great opportunity to learn the in-depth advances in different aspects in science from experts, the KVIS-ISF Sci talk is an important endeavor for future generations to see where we, either young or professional scientists, are now on the track of sustainable development goal and can take part in this aspiring mission altogether for the global society…

Oral Presentation

KVIS-ISF and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

By Tanupat Trakulthongchai

Today, our earth is facing challenges in many aspects. Environmentally, climate change has became more and more severe with global warming, extreme drought, flooding, and and other natural disasters, and billions are suffering from the lack of basic needs like food, water, and healthcare. Political turmoils and cultural challenges exist in every nation and community. This begs the question – what should we, as the human race, do to solve these problems? To solve all the problems, of course, would be impossible. However, we should at least have goals to work towards to improve our own future.

What Are The Sustainable Development Goals?

In the 2015 General Assembly, the United Nations proposed the Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for all nations. A total of 17 goals were set to be achieved by 2030, and it would require the effort of all sectors: government institutions, private sectors, communities, and the general population. However, some goals require actions from the scientific community; Climate Action, Life Below Water, Life On Land, are just a few of the examples.

Hence, this year’s KVIS-ISF comes with the concept of “Gen Z: Advancing Global Sustainability.” Realising the importance of cooperation within the scientific community for global sustainability, KVIS invited young scientists from schools all over the world to showcase their science projects and exchange innovative ideas. These are some of the Sustainable Development Goals that many fascinating science projects in the ISF are contributing to.

Zero Hunger

As an old saying goes, “Farmers are the backbone of the country,” the agricultural sector is one of the most important parts of every nation. Without it, people would fall into starvation. Several studies at the KVIS-ISF emphasizes on this goal, such as researching the ways to ensure that the agricultural products are up to standard both in terms of quality and quantity, and finding the optimal conditions for growth.

Good Health and Well-being

Health is one of the trending research topics, as it is essential for a human happiness and well-being. Many projects presented at the ISF were conducted with this goal in mind, with many focusing on drug discovery and delivery. Interesting studies range from antibacterial compounds in garlic to anticancer proteins in marijuana. Some revolves around the improvement of current medicine, including drugs for heart disease and blood clot, while some focuse more on the detection of diseases like tuberculosis and stroke, using machine learning in prediction and modeling
Beauty products from natural sources are another trend that caught the eye of the ISF’s participants. Taking the advantage from Thailand’s tropical climate, teams researched potentials to turn various local plants, such as citrus fruits and beads, into beauty products. Another topic that cannot be overlooked is the COVID pandemic, with one team invented an easy-to-use and accurate test kit to find the infected cells and prevent infections of future diseases.

Clean Water and Sanitation

75 percent of the Earth’s surface and 70 percent of our bodies are composed of water; therefore, clean water and sanitation are one of the most basic requirements for survival. One of the major problems is that water sources and their distribution system are contaminated with heavy metal, such as lead and arsenic that are used in many factories nearby. This issue has raised an awareness and inspired some young scienctists to make sensors that indicate the amount of heavy metal ions in water, using different choices of materials and strategies.

Affordable and Clean Energy

Recent studies have found that traditional energy sources such as fossil fuels, coals, and natural gases can be harmful to human health and environment, yet the increasing use of enery is rapidly depleted these sources. As a result, green energy became a more environmentally friendly alternative that every nation has been couraging their residents to produce and consume. One green energy source that is highlighted in the KVIS-ISF is solar energy, with many studies attempting to improve its efficiency with the help of modeling.

Climate Action

For the past decade, climate change has impacted our lives in many different ways. According to Angela Merkel, a scientist and former German chancellor, “Climate change knows no borders,” due to its scale and effect on the environment. Waste management is a hot topic at the ISF, with inventions such as a compost container for banana peels and a device for classifying different kinds of plastic. There is also a study conducted on the adsorption of carbon dioxide by water hyacinth, along with many more studies addressing the issue of climate change, as its causes and effects become clearer each day.

Life on Land

To truly achieve sustainable development, we must understand and empathize with all lives, including those of the animals around us, and an ecology research about mating strategies of birds in a Japanese town did just that. Another way to care for land animals is to take care of their living environment, and that is evident in a project that made use of bacteria to convert toxins in soil into more plant-friendly substances. Wildfire prevention was also discussed here, with math and computer science being the main tools for stopping the destruction of forests and wildlife.

In A Nutshell

We can see extraordinary efforts and immense potentials from this generation of young scientists in bringing sustainable development to humanity. The means by which they achieved it were very unique and diverse, from ecological studies and chemical extractions, to bioinformatics and artificial intelligence. There isn’t just one way to achieve the same goal¬ — in fact, there are infinitely many. However, all methods ultimately share a common goal, to increase our knowledge of the world that we live in, and make it a better place for future generations.

Students escaping & teacher sharing

The parallel universes in KVIS-ISF 2022!

Science activity

By Pimpraewa Putharukkit

The quote “Mysteries abound where most we seek for answer” by Ray Bradbury could be appreciated by those who have gone through the complicated KVIS-ISF escape room. Three takeaways for those who participated in our mysterious and thrilling Escape Room adventure were that knowledge, adaptability, and creativity are all essential for Gen-Z who want to survive in today's ever-changing world. Different thought-provoking missions covering all fields of science with the integration of general knowledge are assigned to each room. For example, no one would normally make a connection between RNA transcription and roman numerals, but anything was possible in the escape room.

The purpose of this Escape Room activity was to build and maintain strong ties among the schools, and with the participation of all participants, the event was an immense success. Though the pandemic had made onsite, face-to-face meetings impossible, this online activity still helped students connect while being thousands of miles apart


Teacher Sharing

By Phatthamon Saenmuk

While students were busy solving escape room puzzles in the scientific activity, teachers from schools all over the world came together to share teaching experience and ideas. Nine teachers from seven countries shared their experience on a wide range of topics, from pedagogy and methods of instructions to useful tools for STEM classrooms.

Some highlights of this session include “Skills Transformation Through Project-based Learning” by Dr. Christine Yu, Assistant Principal at G.T. (Ellen Yeung) College, Hong Kong, which focused on how working on real-world problems can help students develop deeper understanding of the topic, along with creativity, critical thinking and collaborative skills. The presentation on “Teaching Scientific Oral Presentation focusing on Question-and-Answer Session for High Ability Science Students” by Ms. Sophia Arwae, an English teacher at KVIS, also provided valuable insights to help students and teachers who are non-native speakers of English develop competency in real-time interactions during an oral presentation.

Despite being a teacher sharing session, some topics were also useful to students in both expanding their knowledge and giving them ideas for their own research projects. Mr. Tan Hoe Teck’s “Development of Arduino-based Science Experiments,” which involved using Arduino microcontroller device as a data logger to record and share information, and Dr. Yoshio Okamoto’s “The KVIS Seismograph System and Its New Development,” which featured the system that help detecting middle to large class earthquakes all around the world, were examples of presentations that both provided interesting and valuable information in STEM research.
