|University of Chicago, PhD|
Dr. Xunming Deng, a recognized authority in thin film silicon based photovoltaic, has broad experience in the design, construction, and optimization of high-throughput photovoltaic manufacturing equipment. Dr. Deng received his PhD in physics in 1990 from the University of Chicago with a dissertation focused on amorphous silicon. Dr. Deng is also a Professor of Physics and Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Toledo, and directs UT’s Thin Film Silicon Photovoltaic Laboratory. He is currently on a leave of absence from UT to spend full time at Xunlight Corporation. Prior to joining the UT faculty in 1996, Dr. Deng was Senior Scientist and Project Manager for Photovoltaic Development at Energy Conversion Devices, Inc.’s Machine Division, which builds roll-to-roll PV production lines for amorphous silicon PV module manufacturing.
