Dr. James Patrick Connolly
GeePs-CentraleSupelec, Gif sur Yvette, France
I completed an undergraduate physics degree followed by a masters in semiconductor science and a PhD in solid state physics for photovoltaic applications at Imperial College London.
I've worked on low dimesional II-V solar cells (quantum wells) at Imperial College London, on CIGS at IRDEP/ENSCP in Paris, on multijunction low dimensional cells at Imperial once again, then on silicon based plasmonic and spectral downconversion in Spain (NTC Valencia). This included a range of projects the most recent of which is a COST project (MultiscaleSolar.eu) which I proposed and chaired.
I am currently back in Paris working at the GeePs joint laboratory modelling advanced characterisation techniques, and modelling novel multijunction concepts, and coordinating a ERANET project.
