Register for the PhD day for free!

The PhD day will be organized, prior to the 9th European Kesterite Workshop, at EnergyVille on November 28th (bus transport to Genk is foreseen free of charge). The meeting will be completely student organized and allow participating PhD students to present and discuss interesting topics among themselves.

Talks about characterization techniques

  • Raman Spectroscopy
  • Accelerated Lifetime Testing
  • Atom Probe Tomography
  • Modeling thin film solar cell with SCAPS

Round Robin experiment

A Round Robin Experiment is an interlaboratory study. It will consist on interchanging your samples between the different PhD students assisting to the PhD day pre-workshop. The aim is to receive further information (characterization) of your own samples from other laboratories which may use different techniques or methodology. A part from being a good way of networking this test will provide reliability and an extra evaluation on your samples.

Close to the PhD day date, we will provide to all participants the specific survey to be able to take part on the Round Robin Experiment.
