Gregory M. Hanket
Gregory M. Hanket is a Research Associate at the Institute of Energy Conversion, a United States Department of Energy Center of Excellence for Photovoltaic Research and Education. His primary area of interest is the conceptualization and engineering of novel thin film deposition processes, with an emphasis on pilot-scale validation and process model development to support commercial scale-up.
His work includes the demonstration of roll-to-roll deposition of Cu(InGa)Se2 on polyimide films, the development of a vapor transport process for II-VI deposition, demonstrating improved device characteristics of (AgCu)(InGa)Se2 films, and characterization of the reaction mechanisms in precursor processes for Cu(InGa)(SeS)2 film formation.
He is an inventor on multiple commercially-deployed U. S. patents, and has authored over 25 technical publications. Dr. Hanket holds a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware, and a B.S. in chemical engineering from Case Western Reserve University.
