Nicoleta Nicoara

Staff Researcher
Nanostructured Solar Cells

Since 2012, when Nicoleta Nicoara joined the Laboratory for Nanostructured Solar Cells,  her research activity is dedicated to the development and application of advanced scanning probe microscopy tools and methodologies for the characterization of the optoelectronic properties of chalcopyrite Cu(In,Ga)Se2 semiconductor materials used in high efficiency solar cells.

Nicoleta Nicoara obtained a Ph.D. (2007) in Condensed Matter Physics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) working on the nanoscale characterization of organic/inorganic interfaces used in optoelectronic devices.  As a post-doctoral researcher at UAM (2007-2011), she developed a low-temperature scanning probe microscope for atomic scale characterization of low-dimensional systems.
