PhD student Swapnil Dattatray Deshmukh wins 2020 Photovoltaics Specialists award
Davidson School of Chemical Engineering graduate student Swapnil Dattatray Deshmukh recently won the Best Student Presentation Award at the IEEE 2020 Photovoltaics Specialists Conference (PVSC) in the Area 2: Chalcogenide Thin Film Solar Cells Division.
Swapnil Deshmukh’s presentation, Investigating the Potential of Amine-Thiol Solvent System for High-Efficiency CuInSe2 Devices, was given online due to travel restrictions from the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The Best Student Presentation Award recognizes outstanding work by graduate students in each of the 12 technical areas of the conference. In addition to judging the technical content of the student’s work, oral presentations (via pre-recorded video) and the student’s role in the work are assessed. Only one such award is presented in each of the technical areas.
Swapnil Deshmukh is a 5th year PhD student advised by Dr. Rakesh Agrawal, the Winthrop E. Stone Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering. His research is focused on developing the solution processing routes for thin-film photovoltaic devices in order to achieve low cost, scalable and large area fabrication of solar cells.
