Blogger Araceli HG

Hi, my name is Araceli Hernández Granados  and I am doing my postdoc at the Instituto de Ciencias Físicas (ICF) at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) located in Cuernavaca, Morelos. The research that I am developing its: “Mesoporous Titanium Dioxide (mp-TiO2) layers with plasma treatments for perovskites, Sb2S3 and Sb2(SxSe1-x)3  solar cells”.

I am so happy to be part for 3rd time blogger for the MRS, but this is my first time as a blogger at the beautiful city of Boston! Can’t wait to write about this amazing experience and opportunity!

I am interested on energy conversion topics, flexible solar cells, recycling metals by electrochemical methods, polymeric solar cells and so on.

I will be presenting my poster on Monday (December 2, 2019), titled: “Effect of Plasma Treatment in the Sb2S3 and Sb2(SxSe1-x)3 Solar Cells in Order to Improve Their Photovoltaic Characteristics. ID: EN12.04.33 at Hynes, Level 1, Hall B. Feel free to join me.
