Xiao Ma

PhD Student


I received my B.Sc. (2015) and M.Sc. (2018) degree in Advanced Energy Materials and Devices at Sichuan University, China. During my master degree program, I was involved in two research projects. The first one was about the photoelectrical characterizations of cadmium telluride solar cells with a focus on apparent quantum efficiency measurement. And I also worked on fabrication and performance optimization of perovskite solar cell mainly based on interface engineering.


In September 2018 I started my PhD studies in the group of Prof. R.A.J Janssen. My PhD project is focused on organic near-infrared photodetectors (PDs), which is carrier out in collaboration with Holst Centre under the supervision of Prof. Gerwin Gelinck. Our goal is to extend the detection wavelengths of organic PDs to 1500 nm with a high specific detectivity.
