Dr. Michael Stuckelberger
Michael joined the Defect Lab in December 2014. His current research interests include materials for photovoltaic applications in general and methods to characterize them, particularly by means of x-ray based diagnostics on synchrotron beamlines. During his PhD thesis in material science with the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, he focused on hydrogenated amorphous silicon materials with tunable properties for photovoltaic applications. He obtained his master degree in physics from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Switzerland after studies of chemistry and physics in Zurich and Tomsk (Russia). For his master thesis in particle physics, he worked on the CMS pixel detector with CERN and PSI. Michael was born in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1982.
