Chemistry Graduate Students Advance in Solar Energy Prize
Congratulations to SoFab Inks, a team composed of chemistry graduate students Peter Armstrong and Sashil Chapagain, who, along with engineering student Blake Martin, in UofL’s Solar Manufacturing R&D lab, won $200,000 and are moving on in the American-Made Perovskite Startup Prize. This prize is designed to accelerate the growth of the U.S. perovskite industry by supporting the rapid development of solar cells and modules that use perovskite materials. The UofL team will enter the Liftoff Contest to compete for a $500,000 cash prize. Read more about the competition and how perovskite improves upon silicon, the primary semiconductor used in solar cells.
