Assoc. Prof. Dr. Janez Krč

You can choose a topic for your Diploma (Master or PhD) thesis from the field of:

  • Photovoltaics,
  • Optoelectronics and Photonics,
  • Electronics.

Detailed subject is selected based on your initiatives, recent challenges in the field and based on running projects in the lab. Also your own ideas are welcome!

Below please find some examples of sub-topics from which the subject can be selected:

  • optical modelling and simulations of advanced concepts of dolar cells (a key tool in the optimization of existing and development of novel concepts),
  • optical improvements of optoelectronic devices (e.g. bio-sensors for detection of DNA),
  • photonic crystals (1-D, 2-D, 3-D),
  • developing new methods of characterizations of optoelectronic and photonic structures (e.g. concepts of measurements that enable to determine optical situation inside the solar cell structures, a key issue for further improvements),
  • different applications from analog and digital electronic circuits.
