Pr Razika ZAIR TALA-IGHIL received her PhD in materials physics from University M’hamed Bougara of Boumerdes UMBB in 2007 and the academic accreditation in 2013 at the same university. She is Materials Physics Professor at the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineering IGEE and head of the research team “Advanced Materials” at The Research Unit of Materials, Process and Environment URMPE, Boumerdes University. Before being a Teacher-Researcher at the university, she was permanent researcher in Algiers at UDTS (Silicon Technology Development Unit) from 2000 to 2009. Her research is based mainly on materials for solar cells such as silicon, transparent conducting oxides TCO (tin oxide, zinc oxide), screen printed metallic contact, TLM technique in addition to the study of materials for photocatalysis and environmental cleaning.
The main orientation of her research team is the use and development of nanomaterials. She authored more than 40 publications and 60 international communications, has a patent in solar cell fabrication with tin oxide and is supervising many doctorate students. Reviewer in many journals: Solar Energy Materials & Solar Cells, Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, Materials Research Express, Organic Electronics, Molecular Liquids Journal and
