Faculty - TERI University


Som Mondal
Assistant Professor,
Department of Energy and Environment

Som Mondal has worked in experimental fabrication of silicon solar cell. His expertise lies in industrial silicon solar cell and application of various laser assisted processes in its fabrication. He has also worked on TCAD simulation and development of alternative device characterization methods for solar cell. Prior to joining at TERI University, he worked with Solar Energy Corporation of India and the Ministry of Shipping, GoI, for implementation of utility-scale solar PV projects at major Indian ports. He is also the Co-PI of Centre of Excellence in Thermal Energy Storage in which he is working on development of thermal energy storage for various applications using phase change materials.
