Improving Solar Cells, Research

Abstract:
With research that will make an impact ranging from solar-cell technology to new and improved packaging materials, one University of Houston professor is leading the way in a nanocoatings conference that will bring academia, government and industry research into one venue. Rigoberto Advincula, an associate professor of chemistry and adjunct associate professor of chemical engineering at UH, will lead a workshop at "The Future of Nanocoatings and Ultra-thin Films" conference May 16-18 in Miami.
