MAGNETRON SPUTTERING METHODS AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY

Dr Tabitha Amollo has been awarded a visiting research scholar position at Michigan State University (MSU) in the African Futures Research Leadership program. She is one of the ten fellows in the fourth cohort of this program, drawn from member institutions. At MSU, she is hosted by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Amollo hopes to further her research prowess in developing materials and technologies for solar energy conversion. She will optimise thin film growth parameters during the program using magnetron sputtering methods. Thus, she hopes to contribute to advancing high-quality thin film growth mechanisms.

Thin film processing is pertinent to producing various devices, including smart windows, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), solar cells and liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Dr Amollo hopes to develop high-efficiency perovskite/c-Si tandem solar cells with optimised processing parameters.
