Asst Prof Martial Duchamp

Dr. Martial Duchamp received his Master of Engineering and Research degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique, Grenoble (ENSPG-INPG), France in 2005 and a Ph.D. degree from the Physic department at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland in 2009, where he studied the growth, electrical and mechanical properties of ZnO nanowires. After postdoctoral research at Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU), Copenhagen, Denmark, he joined the Research Center Jülich in The Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons (ER-C) institute in 2011, where he investigated solar cells using various TEM techniques, mainly focusing on the chemical analysis of very low dopant concentrations and in-situ TEM experiments. In 2016, he joined NTU as an Assistant Professor.
