Kevin Bernardo de Oliveir

Research Engineer

Nanofabrication, Optoelectronics and Energy Applications

Kevin obtained his M.Sc. degree in Micro and Nanotechnologies Engineering in 2019 at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology from the Nova University of Lisbon. He developed his master's thesis in the Medical Devices Group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal.

Soon after graduating, Kevin was hired as a Research Fellow by the NOA (Nanofabrication for Optoelectronic Application) group at INL. There, he worked in the H2020-funded project ARCIGS-M (07/2019-11/2020), which aimed to develop novel architectures for thin-film solar cells based on Cu(In,Ga)Se2. Most of his work was focused on the fabrication of passivation layers for solar cells using microfabrication techniques. Following that, he continued working in the NOA group on the PT2020-funded project SafeChrome (12/2020-07/2023), aiming to develop solutions to replace the toxic chromium coatings used by the industry. In this project, he further developed his knowledge of coatings and characterization techniques. Since July 2023, Kevin has been hired as a Research engineer to work on the nanofabrication of coatings for high-performing glass in the PRR Project R2UTechnologies.
