Biography

Dr. Anthony Chesman is a Senior Research Scientist in CSIRO Manufacturing.

Dr Chesman joined CSIRO in 2011 as an OCE Postdoctoral Fellow, and also held a Discovery Early Career Research Award in the area of solar cell research before becoming a Research Scientist in 2014. Dr Chesman is currently researching the development of earth-abundant thin-film solar cells that are produced through high-throughput, solution-processable methods . The ultimate objective of this work is to create flexible photovoltaic devices that can be manufactured by affordable mass-production techniques, such as spray coating or printing, which will significantly lower the cost energy generation in comparison to existing silicon solar cells.

Dr Chesman is also the Team Leader of the Nanomaterials and Devices Team and Group Leader of Integrated Systems and Device Group. In this capacity Dr Chesman managers over 20 staff and 40 visitors/affiliates in diverse areas spanning prototyping, optoelectronic devices, and OLED fabrication.
