New Lab for Solar Cell Fabrication at Mount Holyoke College
Undergrad students at Alexi Arango’s lab at Mount Holyoke College use an LC Technology glovebox to build layered structures such as organic LEDs and third-generation solar cells with a goal of generating renewable energy. These cells employ semiconductors such as quantum dots, molecular dyes, and metal oxides which are easily manufactured, highly efficient, and inexpensive compared to devices using silicon.

University of New South Wales Conducts Hydrogen Fuel Cell Research
Headed by Dr. Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou, the School of Chemical Engineering at The University of New South Wales is using an LC Technology glovebox for research in their EnergyH crowd-funding project. EnergyH has a goal of making hydrogen the new clean energy carrier by commercializing hydrogen based technologies. To learn more about Dr. Aguey-Zinsou’s project, watch this short video presentation:
