New photovoltaic research partnership spans countries, disciplines
ASU’s Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies Engineering Research Center, known as QESST, will lead a collaboration involving five universities in three countries to make advances in solar cell technology and explore new applications for photovoltaic devices. QESST is directed by Christiana Honsberg, a Fulton Schools professor of electrical, computer and energy engineering. Among results the research project is expected to produce are technologies that are more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity, integration of solar cells into indoor “internet of things” sensors and wearable technology and low-cost solar cell manufacturing. News of the project is also posted on the Solar Novus Today, Solar Builder magazine and Phys.org websites.
