|CAMP Receives Funding for Development of PV Systems
A group of over 20 CAMP faculty members led by Distinguished University Professor/CAMP Director S.V. Babu received $1,512, 000 from the Army Research Office (ARO) to develop efficient and robust organic, inorganic and hybrid photovoltaic systems utilizing their expertise in synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and systems. A significant portion of the group’s collective expertise in this area was created while working on other ARO supported projects on nanocomposite self-healing materials, ultra hydrophobic coatings and smart sensors for soldier protection. CAMP intends to partner with various NY State businesses that have similar interests and expertise.
