The Center for Interface Science: Solar Electric Materials (CISSEM) is actively seeking opportunities to interact or collaborate with industry. To explore possibilities please contact us by email at email@example.com.
Our interactions with industrial sponsors complement our basic research, helping to advance thin-film technologies, and providing CISSEM’s graduate students and postdoctoral research associates with outstanding training opportunities.
Research at CISSEM addresses the basic science of interfacial processes that allows us to understand, modify, and control critical interfacial regions in emerging thin-film photovoltaic solar cell platforms at nanometer length scales. Interfacial processes occurring at organic/metal oxide, organic/metal and metal oxide/metal oxide interfaces are the focus of CISSEM’s collaborative and synergistic research efforts.
Collaborative research projects currently underway at CISSEM for thin-film PV include:
This research creates future energy scientists with a specialization in interface science, who will support the growth of the U.S. renewable energy portfolio.
