With the increased awareness for the environmental impact of energy production, and carbon emission in particular, much focus has been placed on renewable energy sources. It has been shown that solar energy is one of the only alternative energy sources capable of offsetting a major portion of worldwide energy consumption. While a multifaceted approach is required to transition away from fossil fuels, solar energy will surely be key to a sustainable future.
The MOE Lab at Michigan State University focuses on inorganic and organic excitonic materials for solar energy production and utilization. Our ultimate goal is to enhance device efficiencies, lifetimes, and functionality.
Some research projects include:
- Transparent Solar Cells and Transparent Solar Concentrators
- Thin Film Energy Storage
- Renewable Energy Technology Testing and Deployment
