Photovoltaic Technology Research Laboratory Opens

With the purpose of teaching the science and engineering of solar energy and partnering with industry to research methods for producing more-efficient and lower-cost solar cells, the Lee College of Engineering has opened the new Photovoltaic Technology Research Laboratory. Located in the Energy Production and Infrastructure Building, the photovoltaic lab is under the direction of Dr. Aba Ebong, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The production laboratory equipment includes a RTP2 rapid thermal belt furnace, an in-line diffusion furnace and a screen printing system. The production lab can fabricate solar cells using the exact same methods as industry. A computational modeling and solar cell testing laboratory is also part of the new photovoltaic facility. On the educational side, the facility provides students the chance to see how solar cells are produced from start to finish.
