Engineer Discovers Light can Stamp out Defects in Semiconductors for Better Solar Panels and LED Bulbs

University of Utah materials science and engineering associate professor Mike Scarpulla wants to shed light on semiconductors — literally. Scarpulla and senior scientist Kirstin Alberi of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, have developed a theory that adding light during the manufacturing of semiconductors — the materials that make up the essential parts […]
