Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate students (Mr. Suman Devkota, Mr. Kwame Nyako and Mr. Brendan Kuzior) recently presented their research work at 242nd Electrochemical Society (ECS) Meeting in Atlanta, GA. The biannual ECS Meeting brings together the most active professional and student researchers in academia, government, and industry to engage, discuss, and innovate in the areas of electrochemistry and solid-state science and technology, and allied subjects. This is the premier destination for industry professionals to experience five days of learning, technical presentations, business development, and networking opportunities.
This work investigates timelapse study of threshold switching phenomenon in Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) photovoltaics. The current manufacturing process of thin-film Photovoltaics involves laser scribing, an exhaustive and unreliable method, to establish interconnects. This work may potentially lead to a scribe-less technology by eliminating the use of laser or other similar conventional methods.
Mr. Suman Devkota, Mr. Kwame Nyako and Mr. Brendan Kuzior are co-advised by Dr. Vamsi Borra and Dr. Frank Li. This work is done in collaboration with the researchers (Dr. Victor Karpov and Dr. Daniel Georgiev) from the University of Toledo and Dr. Pedro Cortes YSU Chemical Engineering program.
This work was supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Assured Digital Microelectronics Education and Training Ecosystem (ADMETE), under Grant ADMETE FA8650-20-2-1136.
