Lian de Jong graduates Cum-Laude

On May 15th we celebrated the Cum-Laude graduation of Lian de Jong. Lian has worked over the past year on her master’s thesis titled “Strong light-matter coupling in P3HT-C60 organic photovoltaic cells”. In this work, she has shown that it is possible to improve the internal quantum efficiency of organic materials in solar cells by…
