Novel characterisation techniques for photovoltaics, silicon solar cells, energy and functional materials


Dr Truong is working on two projects supported by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA):

  • Advanced Silicon solar cells by DESIJN: a novel technology based on deposited silicon junctions, led by Prof Daniel Macdonald
  • Physical vapour deposited passivating contacts for high-efficiency silicon solar cells, led by Dr Josua Stuckelberger


Thien Truong is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Australian National University in Canberra, Australia. He received his Degree of Engineer in Machinery Manufacturing Technology from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, Vietnam in 2015, and his Master of Science degree in Intelligent Micro Nano Systems from Konkuk University, South Korea in 2018. Thien is working on the applications of advanced characterization techniques for photovoltaic materials and devices, and the fabrication of silicon solar cells with novel passivating-contact technology. Thien is also serving as a Student Activities Coordinator (2022 Term) for the IEEE ACT Section.
