Clean Energy: Batteries and Solar Cells

Lisa C. Klein (Materials Science and Engineering)

What is needed to improve the sustainable energy technologies we already have? What is needed to make new technologies practical and clean in the area of energy generation? We will explore energy storage in devices such as batteries and energy conversion, and solar cells and fuel cells. We will talk about active research at Rutgers on alternative energy materials and systems. In the lab, we will assemble and test our own dye-sensitized solar cells.
