Corsin BATTAGLIA obtained his PhD in physics from the University of Neuch‚tel, Switzerland in 2008 for his work on the structural and electronic properties of self-assembled atomic chains on silicon surfaces. He also worked at Hitachi, Japan and at the Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland. In 2009, he joined EPFLís PV-Lab, Switzerland as a postdoc and project leader where he worked on advanced light management concepts for thin-film silicon solar cells ranging from the development of new substrates and electrode materials to the fabrication and characterization of state-of-the-art cells. Since 2012 he is at UC Berkeley, USA. His current research focuses on novel concepts for thin-film III-V solar cells on non-epitaxial substrates and the development of carrier selective contacts for silicon and III-V solar cells.
