Graduate Student Sourabh Dongaonkar wins Best Student Presentation Award (runner up) at IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference
Graduate Student Sourabh Dongaonkar has won the Best Student Presentation Award (runner up) at the 37th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference in Seattle, Washington. His work is titled "A Physical Model for Non-Ohmic Shunt Conduction and Metastability in Amorphous Silicon p-i-n Solar Cells". The goal of his work is to understand the mechanism of shunt losses in thin-film cells, which are responsible for lowering the overall panel efficiency in industrial scale production. His advisor is Professor Muhammad Alam.
