Last week we had the pleasure of having the first annual conference for our newest research collaborators here at Duke. The Center for Hybrid Organic Inorganic Semiconductors for energy (CHOISE) comprises researchers from the National Renewable Energy Lab and universities like Stanford, University of Chicago, and UNC-Chapel Hill, and centers around research in the world of hybrid metal-halide perovskite materials.
It was a great opportunity to meet all of the brilliant people that have been working with us recently but we only knew from email or conference calls! The two day program focused on having each research group present their latest research, emphasizing areas where possible collaborations within the research center could arise. As the center continues to mature, it is really great to know that it is already a home cutting-edge research in the field of hybrid materials.
