An emerging class of solar energy technology, made with perovskite semiconductors, has passed the long-sought milestone of a 30-year lifetime. The Princeton Engineering researchers who designed the new device also revealed a new method for testing long-term performance, a key hurdle on the road to commercialization.
Borrowing from inkjet printers, Princeton Engineering researchers have rolled out a pixel-by-pixel technique to program and print composite elastic materials. It could be used for applications in soft robotics to create octopus-inspired camouflage or in medical devices to sense fine detail in vulnerable spaces.
Princeton CBE held its second-ever graduate commencement reception on Monday, May 23, celebrating the 26 doctoral students and seven master’s students who earned graduate degrees over the past year. Christopher Browne won the department's Jui Dasgupta Outstanding Ph.D. Dissertation Award.
The Graduate School presented three CBE graduate students with its annual Teaching Awards in recognition of their outstanding abilities as teachers. Katelyn Randazzo was honored with the Quin Morton Graduate Teaching Award.
