Thomas Fix is a CNRS researcher in the ICube laboratory, University of Strasbourg – CNRS. He obtained his PhD in physics in 2006 at IPCMS on the topic of oxide thin films for spintronic applications. He then worked for six years as a research associate at the University of Cambridge, UK, firstly on the two-dimensional electron gas LaAlO3/SrTiO3 and then on magnetoelectric self-assembled epitaxial vertically aligned structures. Since 2012 his research interests are advanced concepts and innovative materials for optoelectronics and solar cells. Current research topics include novel oxides for photovoltaics, downconversion and downshifting for photovoltaics, and silicon clathrate thin films.
Thomas Fix is author of about 65 publications in scientific journals and he edited in 2019 a book entitled “Advanced micro- and nanomaterials for photovoltaics”. He presented over 36 talks in international conferences or schools including 12 invited ones. He organized a symposium on “Exotic materials and innovative concepts for photovoltaics” at E-MRS Spring Meeting 2021.
