Project Description (Development of High-Efficiency Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells):

The laboratory for sustainable and nano-manufacturing at UWM is working on development of high-efficiency dye-sensitized solar cells through nano-scale manufacturing technologies. The new nano-structured dye-sensitized solar cells could improve the solar-to-electricity conversion efficiency and accordingly has high potential in reducing the operating cost of solar cells on commercial market.
