Hisham Nasser completed B.Sc. (2008) and M.Sc. (2010) degrees at the Physics Department of Middle East Technical University (METU), Turkey. He received his Ph.D degree from the Micro and Nanotechnology Graduate Program from METU, Turkey in 2015. He conducted his Ph.D studies at the Center For Solar Energy Research and Applications (GUNAM) in METU where he work on developing hybrid photonic and plasmonic interfaces for thin film Silicon solar cells. He joined GUNAM-METU as senior research scientist in 2015. His main research interests have been the development of novel light trapping schemes to enhance the photovoltaic characteristics of Si solar cells, to optimize the deposition-material property relation of ALD grown ultrathin layers, and to develop novel passivating and dopant-free carrier selective contacts for high efficiency Si solar cells. He has published more than 20 scientific papers in these fields in the internationally recognized journals and more than 80 conference papers.
He is coordinating a national project supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) where he aims to develop a complete dopant-free Si heterojunction solar cell. He is part of several national and international projects which aim to develop different type of Si based solar cells including Si heterojunction and Bifacial PERC type solar cells.
