Solar sell research with new materials

BME Institute of Physics researchers studied novel solar cell materials using time-resolved photoconductivity measurements. Research was carried out with collaborators in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL), in the USA (University of Notre Dame), and in Budapest (ELKH Wigner Research Centre for Physics, and Semilab Semiconductor Physics Laboratory Co. Ltd.) The open-access publication has been published in ACS Photonics, with the first authorship of András Bojtor, PhD student of the BME Doctoral School of Physical Sciences.

Semilab AFM at the Institute of Physics

Semilab Semiconductor Physics Laboratory Co. Ltd. has loaned an atomic force microscope (AFM) to the Institute of Physics in order to support R&D and education activities. This compact AFM was installed on May 6, 2022 by a Semilab AFM expert, Dr. András Magyarkuti, a former doctoral student of the Institute. Besides opening opportunities in research and development, the instrument will also enable BME's physics master students to perform advanced laboratory exercises. 
We are grateful for the generous support from Semilab!

Institute of Excellence

As a recognition of its top-quality research activities the BME Institute of Physics was awarded the `Institute of Excellence' title by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
