Zeller-Resnick First Year Fellow 2017
Cora is a graduate student in physics who joined Harry Atwater's group in August 2016. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015 with a BS in physics. She participated in undergraduate research projects focused on characterizing three different materials with applications to solar cells: III-V semiconductors, charge-transfer complexes, and colloidal quantum dots. She worked for a summer at the Fraunhofer Institute in Solar Energy Systems in Freiburg, Germany, where she investigated power-dependent photoluminescence spectroscopy of III-V semiconductors. In the Atwater group, she studies two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides for applications to ultrathin, high-efficiency, and low-cost solar cells.
