PhD Research Student
Mustafa is a PhD student at the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST). He is in the Materials Photovoltaic group under the supervision of Dr. Jake Bowers. His research is based on the advanced electrical characterisation of solution processed Cu(In,Ga)Se2 thin film solar cells using techniques such as Capacitance Spectroscopy. This technique can be especially informative for the case of solution-processed devices which exhibit different recombination mechanism to the vacuum processed cells.
He obtained an MEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from Loughborough University. During his final year project, he developed a thermal evaporation system for the deposition of metal contacts on thin film solar cells.
