Earlier this month, Lux Research published a report on perovskite solar cells and their potential impact on the photovoltaic market. When a major tech research company does a deep dive into a promising technology that's relevant to your field, and around the time when two prominent labs – Stanford and Oak Ridge – publish papers on the topic, you should take notice. And we did! Check out our analysis of perovskites and solar fuels on the blog.
We are also excited to bring you the first update on the SOFI Demo Project. Our own Amanda Smeigh chatted with Alex Grant, the Northwestern graduate student spearheading the CO2 to methanol reactor development. We'd love to hear from you –our community of members – as we build the Demo Project. If you have questions, comments, or want to work with us, let us know!
Last, but not least, if you haven't seen the Reisner Lab's highly entertaining LEGO movie on artificial photosynthesis, we highly recommend it as a cure for the Mondays!
