Deneb received her PhD degree in Physics in Yildiz Technical University-Istanbul, Turkey. Her thesis was based on electrical characterization of silicon heterojunction (HIT) solar cells. After her doctoral studies she started to focus on organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite solar cells. She currently works in SuperSolar project ( to fabricate colloidal quantum-dot intermediate band solar cells (CQD-IBSCs) based in perovskite host materials, and improved with light trapping structures (photonics), to attain high power conversion efficiency and high stability.
