Physicist Roy Clarke and International Team Devise Way Which Shows How Common Elements Can Make a More Energy-Secure Future
Thin-film solar panels, cell phones and the LED bulb lighting your home are all made using some of the rarest, most expensive elements found on the planet. The team has devised a way to make these materials from cheaper, more abundant elements.
Stephen R. Forrest, a scientist who has made breakthrough advances in understanding how the behavior of light and electrons may be controlled, has been selected as U-M’s 2020 Henry Russel Lecturer.
We strive to support the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Physics needs you—because the world needs Victors.
