Nam-Guy Park est professeur à Sungkyunkwan University en Corée du Sud. Considéré comme l’un des précurseurs des cellules solaires à base de pérovskites hybrides, il a notamment permis l’amélioration du rendement des premières cellules passant ainsi de 3,8% pour la première (réalisée par T. Miyasaka) à 6,5% en 2011 puis 9% en 2012.

En 1995, NG Park obtient son doctorat “chimie inorganique à l’état solide” à Seoul National University. Son aventure dans les énergies renouvelables commence réellement à partir de 1996 lorsqu’il décide d’effectuer ses études post-doctorales en France, à l’ICMCB-CNRS jusqu’en 1997. Il part alors aux USA et commence ses recherches sur les cellules solaires mésoscopiques à haut rendement, y compris les cellules solaires à pérovskite et les cellules solaires sensibles aux colorants tout en travaillant au National Renewable Energy Laboratory toujours en tant que chercheur post-doctoral. Après 5 années passées à l’étranger, NG Park revient en Corée et rejoint l’Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute en tant que scientifique jusqu’en 2005. Il obtient par la suite le poste de Directeur du Centre de Recherche sur les Cellules Solaires à la Korea Institute of Science and Technology avant de rejoindre la Sungkyunkwan University en 2009.

Durant ces années, NG Park obtint moult distinctions dont le Scientific Award of the Month (MEST, Korea), le KyungHyang Electricity and Energy Award (KEPCO, Korea), le KIST Award of the Year (KIST, Korea), le Dupont Science and Technology Award (Dupont, Korea) et le SKKU fellowship. Il a rédigé plus de 150 publications, déposé plus de 35 demandes de brevets et écrit 3 livres. En 2011, son papier annonçant un rendement de 6,5% pour les cellules perovskites a été cité 2360 fois. Mais c’est en 2012 que NG Park déclencha l’incroyable ascension des pérovskites hybrides halogénées dans le diagramme NREL avec son article, repris près de 5 000 fois, annonçant un rendement de 9%, 1 an seulement après le record des 6,5%.
Nam-Guy Park is a professor at Sungkyunkwan University in South Korea. Considered as one of the precursors of solar cells based on hybrid perovskites, it has especially led to improve the efficiency of the first cells from 3.8% for the first (carried out by T. Miyasaka) to 6.5% in 2011 and 9% in 2012.

In 1995, NG Park obtained his PhD in “Inorganic Solid State Chemistry” at Seoul National University. His adventure in renewable energies really began in 1996 when he decided to pursue his post-doctoral studies in France at ICMCB-CNRS until 1997. He then moved to the USA and began his research on high-efficiency mesoscopic solar cells, including perovskite solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells, while working at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory as a post-doctoral researcher. After 5 years abroad, NG Park returned to Korea and joined the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute as a principal scientist until 2005. He then became Director of Solar Cell Research Center at Korea Institute of Science and Technology before joining Sungkyunkwan University in 2009.

During these years, NG Park received many awards including the Scientific Award of the Month (MEST, Korea), the KyungHyang Electricity and Energy Award (KEPCO, Korea), the KIST Award of the Year (KIST, Korea), the Dupont Science and Technology Award (Dupont, Korea) and the SKKU fellowship. He has written more than 150 scientifc papers, filed more than 35 patent applications and written 3 book chapters. In 2011, his paper announcing a 6.5% efficiency for perovskite cells was mentioned 2360 times. But it was in 2012 that NG Park triggered the incredible rise of halogenated hybrid perovskites in the NREL diagram with its article, taken up nearly 5,000 times, announcing a 9% yield, only one year after the 6.5% record.
