Aug 15, 2018 - OK-LSAMP students spend summer at NASA Glenn Research Center

Physics & Astronomy students Logan Abshire and Tristan Thrasher recently returned from a summer (2018) spent performing research on the effects of high irradiation environments on thin-film solar cells at NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC). Prior to leaving for GRC, both Logan and Tristan had been working on solar cells for space power applications within the Photovoltaic Materials and Solar Cells Group (Sellers) here at OU. This research program within Sellers' group is specifically focussed on developing novel solar cells for missions to outer planetary systems. Tristan and Logan's work has made a signifciant contribution to this effort!
