Center Science

The research of this Center focuses on (1) novel physical principles for solar energy conversion, (2) charge manipulation and exploratory photovoltaic device structures, and (3) novel nanomaterials.

Research Thrusts

Diagram of three overlapping circles. The upper left circle is labeled as Novel Physical Principles and contains a diagram showing several small open and solid dots at different levels. The upper right circle is labeled as Charge Manipulation and Exploratory Devices and contains several images of geometric molecular structures. The lower center circle is labeled as Novel Nanoscale Materials and contains a diagram of layers making up a solar cell.

There is interconnection and synergy among the three main CASP thrusts.

The research of this Center concentrates in three main Thrust areas:
