Dr. Enrique Cánovas
Enrique Cánovas graduated on Applied Physics at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2002), after that, he realized a two-years master of specialization at Universidad de Valladolid working on the spectroscopic characterization of native and operation-induced defects in high power laser diodes. From 2004 to 2006 he made a second master of specialization at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Institute of Solar Energy, IES); training focus was on the fabrication, characterization and optimization of solid state solar cells. After that he joined the group of Prof. Martí and Prof. Luque at IES, where he completed PhD studies on the spectroscopic characterization of novel nanostructures aiming ultra-high-efficiency solar cells. His PhD studies included two placements (covering 9 months in total) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (USA - with Prof. W. Walukiewicz) and Glasgow University (Scotland - with Prof. Colin Stanley). Between 2010 and 2012 he worked as a postdoc with Prof. M. Bonn at FOM Institute AMOLF (Amsterdam - The Netherlands), there he focused on the characterization of carrier dynamics in sensitized solar cell architectures. From 2012 to 2018 he lead the Nanostructured Photovoltaics group in the Department of Molecular Spectroscopy at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, Germany). Since April 2018, Enrique Canovas works at IMDEA Nanosicence where he lead the Nanostructured Photovoltaics; research interests cover all aspects of photovoltaics and nanotechnology and charge carrier dynamics.
