Lazaros Theofylaktos has aquired his bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of Ioannina in 2016. He completed his Master’s degree in Physical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and his master’s dissertation was titled “Perovskite film deposition and stability measurements for highly efficient solar cells”. As of 2021 he is a Ph.D. student at the Department of Chemistry of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and since 2020 he’s been working in an E.R.C. funded research programme under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Stergiopoulos in N.C.S.R. Demokritos. His Ph.D. thesis will be targeting new materials for solar cell, L.E.D. photodetector etc applications based on hybrid chalcogenides. He has contributed in two internationally published articles during his master’s studies, and has participated with an oral or a poster presentation in a couple of national conferences so far (either as a Master or as a Ph.D. student). His research interests include new possible materials for solar cell applications, and the impact such an implementation could have on the regional economy and quality of life.
