In the News

In 2010-11, the Office of Communications worked with the Office of Sustainability and other campus partners to produce articles and videos for the University home page that also were provided to media and used in the Princeton University Bulletin (faculty/staff newspaper), Facebook page and newsletters of academic programs. Here is a collection of those postings:

Lynn Loo

As part of a series on Princeton inventors, a profile of Lynn Loo, associate professor of chemical and biological engineering, describes her work with conductive plastics for low-cost solar panels and electronics. Commercially available solar panels created using a technique similar to the one developed in Loo's lab could significantly lower the cost of solar cells, and help overcome some of the barriers to their more widespread use.
