Quest to boost solar-cell performance
Arizona State University engineers are leading a national project that promises to propel the growth of the solar-energy industry.
With support from the U.S. Department of Energy, ASU researchers will join engineers and scientists at several other prominent universities to significantly increase the efficiency of the technology for converting sunlight into electricity.
ASU associate research professor Stuart Bowden recently discussed how the research team plans to realize that goal while at the same time making solar-energy systems more economically competitive with conventional energy sources.
Watch an interview with Bowden on the KAET-Channel 8 “Horizons” public affairs program. Bowden’s interview begins after a discussion with ASU physics professor Lawrence Krauss at about the 16:45-minute point of the video.
