COPE and GTPN Prof. Zhiqun Lin's New Perovskite Nanocrystals Show Enhanced Durability
New perovskite nanocrystals developed in the labs of COPE and GTPN Professor Zhiqun Lin (Materials Science and Engineering) show enhanced durability by having protective layers of silica and polymer.
Solar Cells from STAMI Members Reach the International Space Station for Testing
Polymer and Perovskite solar cells fabricated in the labs of COPE Prof. Bernard Kippelen (Electrical and Computer Engineering) and COPE, GTPN Prof. Zhiqun Lin (Materials Science and Engineering) have been taken to the International Space Station (ISS) for testing in the harsh space environment as part of the MISSE-12 mission.
STAMI-COPE Co-Director Carlos Silva Elected to the Class of 2019 American Physical Society Fellows
STAMI-COPE Co-Director Carlos Silva, Professor in the School of Physics and the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has been elected to the 2019 Class of American Physical Society Fellows "[f]or the groundbreaking development of ultrafast laser techniques for probing the transient photophysics of electro-optical and excitonic materials leading to novel and unique insights into charge-separation and carrier generation in organic photovoltaic systems." Congratulations, Professor Silva!
STAMI-COPE Professor Shannon Yee Developing Thermoelectric Polymers for Personal Climate Control
STAMI-COPE Professor Shannon Yee and his team of Georgia Tech researchers are developing polymer-based thermoelectric (TE) materials for wearable devices to help people feel warmer or cooler on demand. The polymer TE materials could either harvest body heat to generate electricity or be used to produce a cooling sensation by hooking up a flexible battery to the circuitry.
