Welcome to my personal page!

My name is Thien Truong, from Binh Dinh, Vietnam.

I am a researcher in photovoltaics, currently at The Australian National University, Australia.

News and Media releases:

  • 12/2021: My new publication: Investigation of gallium‐boron spin‐on co‐doping for poly‐Si/SiOx passivating contacts was chosen for an inside back cover design and be published in the journal Solar RRL

Main paper DOI: 10.1002/solr.202100653

Cover DOI: 10.1002/solr.202170125

  • 07/2021: I submitted my PhD thesis and started a new postdoctoral fellow position at ANU in the same group. I will be working on two ARENA projects:

1 - Advanced Silicon solar cells by DESIJN: a novel technology based on deposited silicon junctions, lead by Prof Daniel Macdonald.

2 - Physical vapour deposited passivating contacts for high efficiency silicon solar cells, lead by Dr Josua Stuckelberger.

  • 04/2021: I received the competitive DAAD Short Term Research Grant for a collaboration project with Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE.

  • 02/2021: My manuscript to Progress in Photovoltaics was accepted. This manuscript was chosen as the best abstract (out of over 1000) in the 2020 EUPVSEC conference. I was also been selected as finalists for the student award at this conference.
