NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A University of New Orleans materials scientist has received a $10,000 grant from the Louisiana Board of Regents to help develop a new solar device at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado.

Weilie Zhou, associate professor with UNO's Advanced Materials Research Institute, and Sarah Wozny, a UNO doctoral student in chemistry, are spending a month this summer at the laboratory collaborating with Kai Zhu, a senior scientist with the lab.

UNO says the researchers will work on fabricating and characterizing a new hybrid solar cell that uses environmentally-friendly inorganic semiconductor nanomaterials — chemical substances or materials that are manufactured and used at a very small scale.

The goal of the project is to make stable, low-cost high-efficiency solar devices.
