Rebecca joined the Atwater Group in March 2014 after she finished her PhD at InnovationLab in Heidelberg, Germany. She works on selective contacts for Si solar cells and on light management in solar cells. During her PhD she investigated the charge transport in organic solar cells by scanning Kelvin probe microscopy. In 2010, Rebecca received a diploma in general physics from the TU Munich where she specialized in semiconductor physics and renewable energy. In her diploma thesis she worked on optoelectronic coupling of GaAs nanowires with photonic crystal waveguides.
