Science Without Borders Program
Undergraduate student Juliana Shimada has participated in the 'Science Without Borders Program' arriving at UCF from the Military Institute of Brazil. The purpose of this program is to allow students to travel internationally to work on a collaborative research projects. Specifically, laser scribing experiments for the P1 scribe were performed at the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL). The main goal was to optimize laser parameters to make a uniform laser scribe that electrically isolates the two separated sides of a molybdenum film used as the back contact for thin film solar cells. A summary of the work and results is presented.
