Goals and Rationale of CEN
Develop the scientific understanding required to improve the performance and cost of solar cells and LEDs to make them thetechnologies of choice for clean energy generation and lighting.
Strong, complementary team of leaders in
Sophisticated characterization tools
to probe the materialsproperties and physical mechanisms.
to address the fundamental issues that limitacceptance of these technologies.
Solar cells and LEDs have synergistic requirements and limitingissues that can be addressed by fundamental research on theseemerging materials.
