Shuai and Iftikhar finish their PhD thesis on multilayer coatings with very good success
Shuai and Iftikhar had both worked during their PhD on multilayer coatings, though on very different applications. Iftikhar designed and processed multi-layer barrier coatings for organic electronics, while Shuai developed and demonstrated multilayer dielectric mirrors for vapor sensing and microcavities for organic solar cells. Both works were exceptionally successful. Iftikhar demonstrated the first solution processed multilayer barriers which were directly processed on top of an organic solar cells and Shuai showed for the first time solution processed dielectric mirrors directly coupled to organic solar cells. I want to gratefully thank both for their fantastic work over that many years! Dear Shuai, dear Iftikhar – all the best for your future!
