RAU Student's Research to be Published in IOP Conference Series
On April 17-21, Arman Papikyan, a 4th-year student in Nanoelectronics at Russian-Armenian University, participated in the VI International Youth Scientific School-Conference Modern Issues of Physics and Technology at the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI in Moscow. 
The conference included lectures by leading scientists from Russia and abroad, presentations by young researchers and a research report competition among the young scholars. Arman Papikyan presented a research report Characterization of Vaccum Flash Evaporated CdTe Thin Films for Solar Cells Application. His research report was selected among the best works by the Program Committee and recommended for publication in the IOP Conference Series.
CdTe thin films can be implemented to fabricate solar cells, a technique that is quite demanded in the field and has bright prospects for development. I hope that more countries, including Armenia, will use solar energy as a renewable energy resource that does not harm the environment”, said Arman. 
What comes to his success at the conference, he confided, I guess my presentation piqued the audience's interest; students and even scientists came up to me after the presentation and asked questions concerning my research”. He also said that the conference offered an excellent chance to broaden the mind by interacting with specialists and students from Russian universities, attending their lectures on innovative research in the field, and getting acquainted with MePhI's current projects and labs.
The VI International Youth Scientific School-Conference Modern Issues of Physics and Technology was dedicated to the 95th anniversary of the academician N.G. Basov, a Nobel Laureate and a MEPhI alumni. The conference aimed at gathering young scientists, Ph.D. and undergraduate students to discuss current issues of modern fundamental and applied physics, nuclear technology and physical technology, to engage the younger generation in science as well as to help them boost their research skills.
