On Thursday, 5 July, the students participating at the ICFO School on Emerging Photovoltaics (2-6 July 2018) came to ICMAB from 3 to 6 pm to visit our research labs. The ICMAB researchers and PhD fellows guided the participants through the different labs and explained them the research performed in our Institute on photovoltaics, including organic solar cells, photonic crystals, perovskites, and oxide photovoltaic materials, and the equipment and facilities for materials characterization.
The lab tour was dividied in 6 different laboratories:
Thank you to all the researchers and staff who volunteered to organize the lab tour, and special thanks to Mariano Campoy-Quiles, member of the Organizing Committee of the School and coordinator of the event.
ICFO Schools on the Frontiers of Light aim at giving talented young researchers and students worldwide a first introduction to a thematic research area and a taste of an international research environment. These schools incorporate a dynamic and social learning environment beyond participating in lectures, including group discussions, direct interactions with the lecturers, student talks, poster presentations, and visits to labs.
Hosted at ICFO – the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona, Spain, and supported by the Fundació Catalunya – La Pedrera • Ignacio Cirac Program Chair, these schools are open to a limited number of students, selected on the basis of academic merit.
The Organising Committee is formed by Prof. Jordi Martorell (ICFO), Prof. Gerasimos Konstantatos (ICFO), Prof. Valerio Pruneri (ICFO), Dr. Mariano Campoy Quiles (ICMAB) and Dr. Robert Sewell (ICFO).
