Lecture title (講演題目): (in English)
Various Kinds of Solar Cells
(in Japanese)
Lecture summary (講演概要):
The lecture presentation (40 minutes) consisted of five main parts: 1) where am I
from? (introduction to Thailand); 2) why do I study abroad? (international study); 3) introduction
to solar cells; 4) nanofibers for solar cells; and 5) conclusions. In the first part, Thailand, my
home country, was introduced. The students then knew basic information, capital, religions,
language, monarch, foods, fruits, and festivals of Thailand, as well as comparisons with Japan.
The second part of the lecture was a brief reason why I have studied abroad in Japan to inspire
the students with international study. In the next part, basic knowledge and technical terms of
solar cells was introduced to build a background for the last part of lecture. In the fourth part, my
present works in the field of "nanofibers for solar cells" were briefly presented. In the last part, the
lecture was concluded. The students then took a rest in 10-minute break. After the break, actual
samples of various kinds of solar cells were demonstrated and their fabrication techniques were
shown (by video). Lastly, a quiz game with 10 questions from me was carried out.

○Other note worthy information (その他特筆すべき事項):
- I appreciated Japanese students. Some part it was quite hard to understand
but they tried to think. When I asked questions, they also tried to answer.
- After Q&A time, I held a quiz game with 10 questions. The student who could
answer each question received a Thai souvenir. It was a funny time. Many students intended and
interested to that game. It is one way to represent all contents of the lecture again.
