170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Professor Stephen Maldonado (Chemistry)

Economic, geopolitical, and environmental pressures have revived interest in solar energy technologies. For implementation at globally-relevant scales, systems that only convert light energy to electrical energy are not enough. This talk will highlight current regional, national, and international research efforts for designing systems that produce clean chemical fuels from sunlight.
