Description

Sofia Henriques Ferreira received her Master’s degree in Engineering Physics in 2014 and she is currently a PhD candidate in Advanced Materials and Processing at CENIMAT/i3N from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, Portugal. She is working on developing and optimizing thin films of metal oxide semiconductors presenting simultaneously transparency, conductivity and luminescent properties – Luminescent TCOs – to improve conversion efficiency in solar cells. Her current research interests include thin films technology, including both chemical and physical deposition processes, as well as ZnO-based nanostructures and thin films for several applications, such as sensors and photocatalysts for the degradation of pollutants in water.
