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.
