BGSU research part of new innovation center

Photochemists at BGSU want to shed light on the future—and at a low cost.

The work of Drs. Felix Castellano and Pavel Anzenbacher, aimed at developing next-generation photovoltaic materials much cheaper than today’s technology, will be part of a newly established Photovoltaics Innovation and Commercialization Center, based at the University of Toledo.

The UT-led consortium has received $18.6 million in Wright Centers of Innovation funding from the state to create the center, part of Ohio’s Third Frontier Project. Photovoltaics deals with converting sunlight to electricity, and research at the center will focus on advanced materials for use in constructing and developing solar cell arrays. Prototyping and demonstrating various photovoltaic system components, developing and installing a complete system, and graduate-level education and consumer awareness are also planned.
