Dr. Rahul Pandey is currently an Assistant Professor (Research) and associated with VLSI Centre of Excellenceat CURIN department of Chitkara University. He received his doctorate (Ph.D.) in design and simulations of solar cells, while associated with the Microelectronics Research Laboratory, Department of Applied Physics, Delhi Technological University, New Delhi, India. During Ph.D. research work, he published eight (08) papers in the peer-reviewed scientific international journal and 12 articles in international and 01 in national conferences. During Ph.D. work novel architectures have been designed for next-generation photovoltaics.
He has been awarded junior and a senior research fellowship from University Grant Commission (UGC) Government of India. He has also one DST sponsored project (Rs. 24.5 Lacs) to his credit for the development of PERC solar cell through device simulations. He has been awarded international travel support from the DST, Delhi Technological University and CSIR, India for presenting part of his research work in USA and Portugal.
He is an active reviewer of Journal of Photonics for Energy (SPIE), Physica Status Solidi (a), Wiley and Electron Device Letter, IEEE.He received research excellence and incentive awards from Chitkara University, Punjab and from Delhi Technological University, Delhi, India. His research area covers the design and simulation of solar cells, semiconductor physics, thin films and nanotechnology, electronic engineering, solar energy materials, photodetectors, silicon,and perovskite solar cells. He is a member of International Solar Energy Society (ISES), Wiesentalstr. 50, 79115 Freiburg, Germany. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Solar Energy Society of India (SESI).
