Enhancing the performance of energy conversion and storage devices through the development of nanomaterials.
The NanoPower Research Labs (NPRL) are a key component of the Center for Sustainable Energy Systems at RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS). Research is focused on the development of new materials and devices for power generation and storage for microelectronic components and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). Targeted technologies include: carbon nanotubes for high-density storage in lithium ion batteries and wires; triple junction II-V photovoltaics; and polymer photovoltaics.
The NPRL are multidisciplinary laboratories serving the research needs of faculty principal investigators in GIS, Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and the College of Science. Ph.D., Masters, and undergraduate students from over 10 academic programs conduct research under the supervision of faculty principal investigators and alongside a full-time staff of scientists and research assistants.
