Nicoleta Nicoara

Staff Researcher

Nanostructured Solar Cells

Nicoleta Nicoara has dedicated her research efforts to the development and application of advanced scanning probe microscopy tools and methodologies in the field of energy materials. Her primary focus is on characterizing the optoelectronic properties of chalcopyrite Cu(In,Ga)Se2 semiconductor materials, which are integral components in the production of high-efficiency solar cells.

Nicoleta Nicoara earned her PhD in Condensed Matter Physics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, where her research centered on the nanoscale characterization of organic/inorganic interfaces for optoelectronic devices. Subsequently, as a post-doctoral researcher at UAM, she showcased her expertise by developing a low-temperature scanning probe microscope tailored for the atomic-scale characterization of low-dimensional systems.
