UCF secures $7.5 million research grant to improve hybrid PV cells

28 October 2009

SPIE Member Winston Schoenfeld and the University of Central Florida have been awarded a $7.5 million research grant to study ways to make photovoltaic solar cells more efficient in capturing and converting solar energy into electricity and less costly to manufacture.

Schoenfeld is chair of the annual SPIE conference on Advanced Fabrication Technologies for Micro/Nano Optics and Photonics, to be held next at Photonics West in January 2010.
