Michael Zemcov's research on rouge stars and the Cosmic Infrared Background ExpeRiment is featured in the April issue of Astronomy Magazine in the cover story, The Galaxy's Marvelous Rogues and Misfits.
The Department of Energy is working with a group of RIT to develop low=cost high efficiency solar cells. Most solar panels on houses or buildings are less than 20 percent efficient at turning sunlight into energy.
The SPIE Frits Zernike Award for Microlithography recognizes outstanding accomplishments in microlithographic technology, especially those furthering the development of semiconductor lithographic imaging solutions.
Professor Seth Hubbard is an expert in designing, growing, and fabricating solar cells and said that if the cost of these highly efficient solar cells can be reduced enough, they could be used to help devices ranging from smartphones to drones to cars.
