Solar Power Lab is engaged in research activities on different aspects of Photovoltaics.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced an award to Arizona State University and its partners to establish a new Engineering Research Center (ERC) jointly funded by NSF and the Department of Energy (DOE): the NSF-DOE ERC for Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies (QESST). QESST will develop interdisciplinary research and education programs to address a stubborn energy challenge -- how to realize a large-scale, sustainable, domestic energy source -- by developing advanced solar photovoltaic technologies and by providing the foundation for new industries
Steven Limpert, an undergraduate working at the Solar Power Laboratory, was recently awarded a Circumnavigators Club Foundation grant to study the development and commercialization of solar energy technologies in nations throughout the world during the summer of 2011.
Jeremy Wendte, an undergraduate working with the Solar Power Laboratory, was recently awarded a Fulbright grant to study solar electrification in Bangladesh.
