    Qin receives NSF Faculty Early Career Development Award for photovoltaic research

    Research could transform solar cells

    Yang Qin, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at the University of New Mexico, has received a five-year, $525,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for research involving organic photovoltaics. Qin’s futuristic research, titled “Bottom-Up Approaches for Precisely Nanostructuring Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Multi-Component Composites,” could lead to products that generate electricity directly from sunlight. If the research is successful, humans could one day wear clothes that generate electricity from the sunlight.
