CHEETAH knowledge Exchange Portal is an integral part of CHEETAH project web site powered and developed by DTE unit of ENEA ©2014 - 2018 with support of all CHEETAH Partners. Starting from early 2018, CHEETAH KEP moved its first steps to became EERA Knowledge Exchange Platform for PV Technology (KEPT-PV). A new name for the previous platform characterizing our will to serve better and more efficiently in Knowledge Exchange a wider European and International PV RTD community.

Short Bio

Dr. Jaionehas BENGOECHEA  has more than 15 years working experience in national and international projects related to experimental physics, in particular, to plasmas, lasers, material science, and solar photovoltaic.
She received her M.Sc. in Physics in 1998 from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) and her PhD in Physics (with honors) in 2006 from the Basque Country University (Spain). She was a pre-doctoral Marie Curie Fellow during one year at the National Centre for Plasma Science and Technology in Dublin City University (Ireland). During her PhD she gained practical skills in spectroscopy of laser-induced plasmas. From December 2005 to October 2008, she was a permanent researcher working at the Light Generation Group of Royal Philips Electronics, in Aachen (Germany). During this period, her main research topics included the study and characterization of frequency conversion materials, with lasing properties, and the evaluation of new industrial applications for lasers. Since November 2008, she belongs to the scientific staff of the Photovoltaic Solar Energy Department, in the Spanish National Renewable Energy Centre. Her main activities include the optical characterization of photovoltaic components and materials, and also the development of new materials, processes and architectures aimed at increasing the efficiency of silicon-based solar cells. She is currently leading a project for the development of a glass with advanced functionalities in the light management. She is expert member of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for photovoltaic standards.  
She has been author or co-author of 9 scientific articles, 8 patents, and has presented 12 contributions in international conferences
