Sciences: Solar Cells

Department: Chemical Engineering

Supervising Faculty Member: Joshua Choi

Specialization: Solar Cells

Research Focus: Our research group investigates new low-cost solar cell materials that can perform better than the conventional materials. To this end, we perform materials synthesis, characterization, device fabrication and testing.

Position Description: The student will work closely with a graduate student mentoring in investigating how changing the processing conditions of the solar cells impact their performance. The student's work activities will primarily be focused on fabricating and testing solar cell devices.

Required skills: Chemistry laboratory experience will be useful.

What you will learn: 1. Knowing how solar cells work. 2. Knowing how to fabricate and test solar cells. 3. Knowing the key current questions in the field of solar cell research.
