Nanofabrication for Optoelectronic Applications
Margarida Monteiro is a Research Fellow working on the Nanofabrication Optoelectronic Application’s Group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal. Margarida is currently working within the project “SafeChrome”, aiming at developing new PVD coatings based on polymers, brass, aluminium to substitute galvanisation processes of Cr(VI).
Margarida obtained an MSc degree in physics engineering in February 2021 from NOVA School of Science & Technology. In her master thesis, she used X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and other characterization techniques to study the impact of passivation layers in thin-film solar cells. Margarida is the co-author of several high-impact publications from journals like Solar RRL and Applied Materials Today where she had the opportunity to collaborate with groups from Universiteit Hasselt, Uppsala Universitet, Universidade de Aveiro, and Universidade de Coimbra. Moreover, Margarida is interested in semiconductors, optoelectronics, low dimension materials, and advanced characterization.
