INPhINIT grant from "la Caixa" Foundation focuses on research in nanosciences and nanotechnology


The research centre i3N|CENIMAT has been chosen by Ghulam Abbas to develop the doctorate work "Highly Efficient and Flexible Thin Film Epitaxial Silicon / Perovskite Tandem Solar Cells". The student was one of the 105 scholarship holders of the INPhINIT programme of the "la Caixa" Foundation, which aims to support the most outstanding scientific talents and promote innovative and high quality research in Spain and Portugal.

The work, coordinated by Hugo Àguas, professor at the Department of Materials Science, will explore the highly efficient and flexible thin film epitaxial Silicon and Perovskite Tandem Solar Cells.

Ghulam Abbas holds an MSc in Physics, from International Islamic University Islamabad, Pakistan, and has been focus on the research in synthesis and characterization of perovskite-based inorganic optoelectronic devices. He published 8 research articles in this duration, with a cumulative impact factor of more than 60 in top-ranked research journals, 50+ citations, and an h-index of 4.
