(01) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student position in the field of thin-film solar cells

We are looking for a student motivated to contribute to the development of thin-film CIGS photovoltaic devices. The researcher in this position is responsible for the fabrication and characterization of solar cells and layers based on the CIGS material system. The researcher goals are to understand and overcome limitations of devices based on new alloyed CIGS absorbers with high bandgap, explore the absorber processing limits and develop electrical contacts, in view of new applications such as bifacial and semi-transparent solar cells for tandem applications.
