Professor Vandervelde awarded $1 million NSF-MRI grant

August 15, 2013

Professor Vandervelde and his Renewable Energy and Applied Photonics Labs was awarded NSF-MRI grant in excess of $1M to purchase a Molecular Beam Epitaxy System. These systems are capable of growing semiconductors with a composition defined at a precision better than atomic thicknesses. They are also crucial in the development of solar cells, infrared cameras, high-speed (100+GHz) circuits, lasers, and LED lighting.
