Harnessing solar power — for less

Carsten Milsmann

Dr. Milsmann earned the National Science Foundation’s prestigious CAREER Award for research that could help develop solar energy applications that are more efficient and cheaper to produce.

He and five WVU graduate students hope to develop new compounds using early transition metals. These are more widely available and cost effective than the precious metals typically used in new solar cell technology.
