Professor Mihri Ozkan wins Young Investigator Award
Professor Mihri Ozkan has been chosen to receive an Army Research Office’s Young Investigator Program Award for her research into techniques for developing higher-efficiency photovoltaic cells. She and a postdoctoral researcher will work to improve the charge collection efficiency at the polymer/ITO electrode interface by the addition of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires, and also improve the absorbtion efficiency and carrier mobility with the addition of single-walled nanotubes as a blend. The Army would apply the research for use in less expensive and more efficient solar cells to power portable electronic equipment. This research could also be transferred to industry for the manufacturing of renewable and clean solar cell devices.
