The Center for Interface Science: Solar Electric Materials (CISSEM) was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences from August 1, 2009 – December 31, 2014, as part of a broad range of Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs) designed to underpin the development of economical energy conversion platforms for the 21st century. CISSEM successfully integrated the research groups of 19 principal investigators at five institutions, and built highly productive collaborations with the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.  DOE EFRC funding positively impacted and enhanced the training and development of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and research scientists at the five CISSEM institutions: The University of Arizona, Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Washington and the National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL) in Golden, and Colorado universities associated with NREL. CISSEM research and accomplishments have resulted (to date) in a legacy of 125+ peer-reviewed publications describing our basic science critical to the development of thin-film, solar-electric photovoltaic energy conversion technologies.  The significance of many of these publications are featured on our website as highlights. Our legacy includes the graduate student, postdoctoral fellow and research scientist alumni who have taken positions of impact and responsibility in technology industries, government agencies and academia in the U.S., Asia and Europe. 

Much of the highly collaborative research sponsored by DOE through this EFRC program will now be built upon at CISSEM's member institutions, with other extramural funding sources.  The state-of-the-art facilities and expertise created for modern interface science, especially as they pertain to energy conversion and energy storage challenges, will be sustained and enhanced to ensure their broadest continued impact.
