Welcome

The Green Energy and Nanostructured Electronics Lab at Tufts University is focused on developing novel solutions to meet the world's growing energy demands. Our research efforts are motivated by an urgent need to develop new technologies for clean, sustainable electrical energy generation and storage. Every 72 minutes, enough sunlight reaches the Earth to supply our current global energy demands for an entire year. The challenge is to capture, convert, and store this tremendous resource effectively. Nanostructured thin film photovoltaics (solar cells) are currently being investigated as a potentially inexpensive means of converting sunlight into electricity. In order to store this energy for use at night, we are also focusing on improving batteries and devices that can store extremely large charge densities (so-called “supercapacitors”). From a chemical engineering perspective, our group seeks to better understand and improve upon next-generation optoelectronic and electrochemical devices for energy applications. The performance of these devices ultimately depends on successful interfacial engineering between a wide variety of materials (organic, inorganic, and polymeric components) at the nanometer length scale.
