Modern LaTeX CV

Today I want to share my new curriculum vitae (CV) for pursuing an academic position in Mexico. If you are a new subscriber of my blog, you should know I am doing a second postdoctoral project at ICUAP-BUAP. The postdoc is a project to get professional experience for a scientific career. However, the small letters of a postdoc life say, "You have no permanent position yet," then you should constantly look for a job. That's why I am here to share my LaTex template with you. The original modern LaTex CV The open software culture encourages you to share your…

Low-cost Pyranometer and Raspberry Pi Pico – I

In the new Postdoctoral project, we are developing thin-film solar cell prototypes. However, some days ago I realize we will require the values of the solar irradiance W/m2 to determine the conversión efficiency $\eta =$ (VocJscFF)/(1000 W/m2) of our cell prototypes. The problem here is we will require an AM1.5 Solar simulator or a pyranometer to calibrate the irradiance (W/m2) of a light source. The possible solutions In my opinion, there are two ways to have these solar irradiance values: a) Fabricate a low-cost pyranometer using silicon photodiodes; b) Calibrate a reference solar cell (Si, crystalline or monocrystalline) using a…

How to Create a Graphical Abstract for your Science Manuscript?

Long time no see, but I have been drafting two manuscripts during the Covid-19 lockdown. The first one is about my 2020 postdoctoral project at the Physics Institute of BUAP (IFUAP), and the other one comes as a collaboration with my last research group at IER-UNAM. Both works are related to the synthesis of new materials for energy conversion, solar cell development, and numerical simulation using SCAPS-1D. At this stage, the writing process and discussion with my coworkers have almost come to an end. However, one of the requirements to submit the manuscript to the journal is to include a…
