Willem-Jan Berghuis is a Doctoral Candidate in the Plasma & Materials Processing (PMP) group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The research topic of his PhD is the surface passivation of semiconductors using nanolayers fabricated by Atomic layer deposition (ALD). This research is relevant for reducing recombination losses associated with the surface of semiconductors in devices like solar cells and nanolasers.

My goal is to engineer and understand interfaces between semiconductors and thin films in order to improve conversion efficiencies of photovoltaic and photonic devices.


Willem-Jan Berghuis received his MSc degree in Applied Physics from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2018. After this, he started a PhD at the TU/e in the research field of semiconductor surface passivation by ultrathin films.
