In the fourth and final of ND Energy’s solar series, learn about some of the research being done at Notre Dame on photovoltaic solar cells. With nearly thirty years of research in developing nanomaterials for cleaner and more efficient light energy conversion, Dr. Prashant Kamat, Rev. John A. Zahm Professor of Science in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Radiation Laboratory, and Concurrent Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, along with his team, is working on the next generation of photovoltaics. His areas of expertise include nanostructure architectures for energy conversion and environmental remediation. Professor Kamat is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of ACS Energy Letters. Some of his awards include the Irving Langmuir Lectureship Award from the American Chemical Society, the Chemical Research Society of India Medal, and fellowships in the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Electrochemical Society. Professor Kamat has been a member of the Notre Dame faculty since 2006.
Sponsored by the Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame (ND Energy), this event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend!
