Marion Drießen studied Physics at the Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg in Germany. She received the PhD degree in 2013 from the University of Konstanz in Germany. The topic of the thesis was chemical vapour phase etching and epitaxial lateral overgrowth for crystalline silicon thin film solar cells and the work was carried out at the Fraunhofer institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE). Since then she works at the Fraunhofer ISE in the department of silicon materials. Her focuses are epitaxial deposition of silicon and rapid vapour phase direct doping (RVD).
