Re: phd

Hi
With the very little info you gave it is hard to say )
But if you are master graduate in Switzerland, you have high chances, by the way almost all PhD positions in Switzerland are well-paid. At least I know for ETH zurich and EPFL. On solar systems there are now hige fundings flowing, so probably the chances are high.
For Solar systems you can contact Prof. Aldo Steinfeld in ETH Zurich and have a look at his group. He is very professional and a wondeful supervisor as well.
Good luck

you should also consider the solar group in Konstanz (right at the Swiss border)

Dear sasara,

Thanks for your immediate reply. And I am sorry for the limited information I have given. I am doing masters degree in microelectronics in one of the most reputed universities in singapore.

I am more interested in cnt based solar cells.
