Dr. Amal Bouich
Dr. Amal Bouich obtained the Ph.D. degree from the Universitat Politécnica de València with a Score: CumLaude (10/10) and International Mention, carrying out her Ph.D. thesis in the field of semiconductor physics and their photovoltaic applications. In particular: the Investigation and Characterization of Hybrid Perovskites (MaPbI 3 , FaPbI 3 , CsPbI 3 ) and Copper-Indium-Gallium selenide thin films for Tandem Solar Cells.
She started her research work at the Universitat Politécnica de Valencia (UPV) in 2018 . Since then, she has developed her research activity at the same university, holding her research work at the School of Design related to Applied Physics and Optoelectronics.
The research of doctor Bouich’s activity has been developed in the field of the Physics of Semiconductors, where she has published more than 34 papers in international journals and 30 oral Presentations at International Conferences. She got two excellent grants one is ‘Becas Iberoamérica Santander Investigación, Santander Universidades 2020-2021,’ and other is Ayudas a la movilidad, convocatoria “university junior international entrepreneurs” - V edición – 2019. She is the leader of the SpinOff project about tandem solar cells elaborated in IDF-UPV. She had a price from UPV ideas with the best-advanced idea project related to flexible perovskite solar cells. After getting her Ph.D., she got the award of best thesis project and Award of category the Best thesis at the EMRS -2021 Fall Meeting of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS).
Since 2018, she has integrated the research group named Group of Opto-electronics and Semiconductors (GOPS) and began research in the semiconductor laboratory at the UPV. Since then, Bouich has actively collaborated with the research group GOPS, specializing in the preparation and characterization of semiconductor thin films for optoelectronic and photovoltaic applications. Nowadays, Dr. Bouich gets her Postdoctoral position of Margaritas Salas at the University Polytechnic of Madrid with the collaboration of the University Polytechnic of Valencia, where she is supervising 6 Ph.D. students and teaching physics courses about semiconductors Materials and quantum physics; the main objectives are the realization of a new generation of solar cells based on new materials of perovskite stable, high efficiency with low-cost techniques and the consolidation of the Spin-Off to explode the know-how in this area.
