On July 2008, I’ve just finished my PhD degree from Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Yeungnam University at Gyeongsan, South Korea. I got my B.S from Department of Metallurgy University of Indonesia in Aug. 2002 and M.S in Engineering degree from Department of Materials Science and Engineering Yeungnam University (YU), South Korea in Feb. 2005.
My research interest spans from thin film technology to electrochemistry which I believe can offer many advantages in order to develop a thin film solar cell. I have big curiosities on the phenomena underlying the solar cell physics as a part of soli state physics, quantum mechanics as well as statistical mechanics.
I like reading, mostly physics and other popular sciences. I love specific topics of the relation between religion, philosophy, science and metaphysics. Blogging is my newest hobby, usually done when I have a spare time.
Currently, I am working in AIT Austrian Institute of Technology in a beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. A very different working atomosphere compared with universities/academics culture actually. AIT is a non-academic research institute and works closely to promote new technologies as well as to transfer them into a practial industrial application. And I am dedicating my time in AIT in an emerging technollogy research group for investigating the technological application of earth-abundant semiconductor materials for photovoltaics .
My family and I are spending great and valuable time here in Vienna.
With this Blog, I try to collect and to publish as much as possible my thought concerned primarily about the solar energy and green energy concepts, discourses, ideas and scenarios as a part of a sustainable-renewable energy issue based on my knowledge, experiment as well as experience dealing with solar cell with a popular science-writing style.
Hope it will be useful for the readers, in particular for Indonesians whom I dedicated this blog to.
I believe that in the near future, the world’s energy security will depend strongly on the sustainable energy supply in order to maintain its economics activity and civilization.
And solar energy extracted by solar cell will be one of the right choice…
