            KINGSVILLE (July 12, 2019) — Muath Bani Salim, a doctoral student at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, won the Best Poster Award at the 46th Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Photovoltaic Specialists Conference held recently in Chicago.


            He won with his poster Improvement and Scale-up of Organic, Hybrid, and Perovskite Solar Cells. Salim’s poster highlighted the oscillator strength and the band gap for specific organic photovoltaic cell materials by using Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory.


            Photovoltaics relates to the conversion of light directly into electricity.


            Salim is a student in the Sustainable Energy Systems Engineering doctoral program under the supervision of Dr. Reza Nekovei, Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering.


            IEEE selects one Best Poster Award for each technical area, based on four selection criteria including clarity of presentation, technical merit, impact and oral presentation.
