Ilianna Charkoutsaki
Research Assistant
Ilianna Charkoutsaki graduated from University of Crete were she obtained her B.Sc. and Master's Degree from Materials Science and Technology Department, in Optoelectronics and Nanotechnology. The work during her studies concerned the process of Photo-electrochemical selective etching (PEC). This technique involves selective reactions between semiconductors and electrolyte solutions, due to light absorption. Photo-electrochemical reactions constitute one of the main experimental tools essential for the processing and fabrication of crystalline hetero-structures, to enhance their optical properties
