Caltech Post-Doc Program Focuses on Renewables
At Caltech’s Resnick Sustainability Institute in Pasadena, Calif., some scientists have begun postdoctoral fellowships in energy technologies.
The scientists in this first class of Resnick Institute Postdoctoral Fellows are focused on:
1. Highly efficient solar energy to drastically increase the efficiency of low-cost solar cells.
2. A system of materials that can effectively convert sunlight and CO2 to fuel that can be used at any time of day or night.
3. Highly efficient fuel cells that operate at mid-range temperatures, which has cost and safety benefits.
Over the coming year, each of the Fellows will work in their respective fields with a Caltech sponsor to experiment and develop these concepts into potentially transformative technologies.
