Kansas Chemist Wins PV Technology Grant
Aug 2009
Kansas State University chemistry professor Ryszard Jankowiak has received a $380,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for research that could aid in the development of artificial photovoltaic devices that more efficiently convert solar energy into electricity. Under the grant, Jankowiak will study two photosynthetic complexes from a type of bacteria. He has received nearly $1 million in the past two years to study various aspects of photosynthesis using laser-based techniques and modeling studies. To date, KSU has received more than $1.5 million in federal stimulus research funding.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
