Boettcher receives $225,000 solar research award

Shannon Boettcher

Shannon Boettcher, an associate professor in the University of Oregon Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has received a Small Innovative Projects in Solar (SIPS) award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative.

Boettcher’s research focuses on harnessing the power of the sun, which provides a staggering amount of energy. The gap between solar energy’s potential and our current utilization of it is limited in part by the cost of making high-efficiency solar cells.
