SEM-MRes students take part in two APS courses in January. The first, based at the CPE's White City site involves hands-on experience of solar cell fabrication, measurement of devices using a solar simulator and fabrication of films. This takes place in a cleanroom. The second, takes place at the CPE's South Kensington facilities in which students get hands-on experience of thin film thickness measurements, transmission and reflection measurements of thinfilms, HOMO energy level measurements of ITO substrate and photoluminecence quantum yield measurements of thin films.
