UI prof gets a $9.1 million commitment for solar cell process

Abstract:
It's not every day you get a call offering you $100,000 - much less a commitment for $9.1 million - but Munir Nayfeh got such a call in August.

The University of Illinois physics professor had just published a paper in the journal Applied Physics Letters. The paper explained how an ultrathin layer of nanomaterials could improve the efficiency of solar cells.

It just so happened that a UI news release about the finding caught the eye of California investor David Gelbaum - who quickly placed a call to Nayfeh.
