EUROSUNMED project presents a PhD thesis


Taoufik Slimani Tlemçani (at the center of the photo) presented his thesis for the University Mohammed V of Rabat (UM5), Morocco, on 26 May 2016.


The title of the thesis is: 'Experimental study of Cu2ZnSnS4 thin films prepared by electrodeposition and ultrasonic spray: Application to photovoltaic conversion'. The thesis jury included, among others, the project partners Mohammed Abd-Lefdil (UM5), Cherkaoui ElMoursli (UM5), Aziz Dinia (CNRS-IPCMS), Zouheir Sekkat (MASCIR), Esidor Ntsoenzok (CNRS-CEMTHI) and the EUROSUNMED project coordinator Abdelilah Slaoui (CNRS-ICUBE).


The work was a result of collaboration between two EUROSUNMED project partners: UM5 and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France. Taoufik had been directly involved in the EUROSUNMED project and also completed an exchange & training programme of 8 weeks at CNRS in Strasbourg in 2014.


Several other PhD projects are under way within the EUROSUNMED framework and they provide a good example of the outreach activities undertaken within the initiative.
