EMRS 2017 Fall Meeting


Rashmi Runjhun, NaMeS PhD student, participated in the 2017 Fall meeting organized by European Materials Research Society (EMRS) at Warsaw University of Technology. The conference consisted of 23 parallel symposia with invited speakers, oral and poster presentations and a plenary session on topics in material science such as energy storage, special materials, nanomaterials and devices. She specifically attended the symposium G on Perovskite solar cells, which is directly related to her project.

In the conference, Rashmi Runjhun presented a poster on some of the initial results from the work jointly carried out by her and her colleagues. During the poster presentation, she interacted with other researchers working in the field of Perovskite solar cells and gained some insight into her work. Rashmi got the opportunity to attend a very enlightening lecture by Professor Micahael Graetzel, one of the most distinguished researcher in the topic of Perovskite solar cells. She also attended several other important talks given by the eminent scientists from different universities and research laboratories such as Prof. Mercouri Kanatzidis from Northwestern University, Prof. Udo Bach from Monash University and Dr. Kai Zhu from National Renewable Energy Laboratory Denver. These talks were very interesting and they enabled her to acquire some basic understanding as well as the current research, challenges and different methodologies used in this field. Being an early stage researcher, this conference provided her a very good international platform to become familiar with the recent advancements and technologies developed in her research area.
