Rebecca Glaudell

Graduate Student


Rebecca is a Physics PhD student interested in addressing the causes of and mitigating the effects of climate change. In the Atwater group, Rebecca is specializing in molecular beam epitaxial growth of Zn-based II-VI semiconductors for use as carrier-selective contacts in HIT-style silicon solar cells. Previously, Rebecca worked on soft point-contact spectroscopy of strongly correlated electron systems under Dr. Laura Greene while earning a B.S. in Engineering Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with a brief stint at CERN working on the magnetic optimization of the future linear collider CLIC under Dr. Rogelio Tomas Garcia.
