The sun provides a sustainable, clean, and abundant source of energy. Harvesting this solar energy and converting it to electrical or chemical energy is probably the most important scientific challenge of our generation. In the Nanomaterials for Energy Applications and Technology (NEAT) Lab, we investigate the synthesis of nanostructured materials and thin films and their use in solar cells. Our focus is on understanding the relationships between synthesis, material and interfacial properties, and solar cell performance in order to improve efficiency and reduce cost of solar cell technology.
