Solar Energy and Nanomaterials
Exhibit Code: SLA-104
Zone: Green Place
Location: Louise Slaughter Hall (SLA/078) - Atrium
Time: All Day
This exhibit will introduce visitors to the activities and technology being investigated in the RIT Nanopower Research Laboratory. We will demonstrate basic concepts involving solar energy and solar cells. This includes demonstrations of solar to electric energy conversion, storage concepts using hydrogen electrolysis and batteries, and ultra-high efficiency solar cell concepts. A variety of solar cell materials and designs will be demonstrated from standard roof-mounted systems to high intensity concentration concepts. We will also explore examples of how nanomaterials are being used to enhance the efficiency of energy conversion, storage and transmission.
