Dr. Scott Mauger earned his doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of California, Davis, in 2013, and his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Oregon State University in 2008. He worked in the research group of Professor Adam Moulé, studying materials distribution, doping, and interfaces between layers in organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices. In this research, he used many experimental techniques such as ellipsometry, neutron reflectometry, and near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy. He also was a visiting student at Linköping University (Sweden) in the group led by Professor Olle Inganäs, where he was involved in the development of imaging methods for in situ characterization of coating and organic film formation. Mauger is now performing postdoctoral research at NREL under Dr. Dana Olson. Mauger's work focuses on OPV module development, in which he uses industrially relevant coating techniques such as slot-die coating, screen printing, and blade coating to fabricate lab-scale devices and modules. His research interests include scale-up and coating methods, photovoltaics, and device design and engineering.
