Research Impact & Significance – Solar energy harvesting has evolved into a premier technology for realizing a sustainable energy future. Work in our research lab focuses on studying solar cells sensitized by dyes that absorb light and convert it into electricity on a semiconductor interface. This photo was taken during the measurement of one of these dyes to determine the energy of light emitted upon excitation.
