Dr. Shahzada Qamar Hussain is working as Assistant Professor in department of Physics at COMSATS University Islamabad, Lahore campus Pakistan. Dr. Hussain completed his doctor degree in energy science from well know Sungkyunkwan University, Suwon South Korea in 2018. His Ph.D dissertation title was “Efficiency improvement methodologies for thin film silicon and crystalline silicon solar cells”. He worked for various advanced light scattering schemes to improve the current density and efficiency of the thin film solar cells. He also worked for the various transparent conductive oxides (TCOs) films like AZO, ITO, ITO:Zr films with high transmittance and high mobility for the improvement of performance in silicon heterojunction solar cells. Recently, Mr. Hussain is involved in the project of hole and electron based carrier selective contacts for silicon heterojunction solar cells. Dr. Hussain completed his M. Phil degree in Physics (Laser Spectroscopy) from Quaid-e-Azam University Islamabad in 2006.
