Economic, environmental, strategic and societal issues have placed energy-related topics at the
forefront of research in a broad and diverse range of areas. For nanotechnology, particular, these issues
encompass everything from fundamental technological advances in electronics and photonics, to
advances in the engineering of photovoltaic materials and devices. The Rutgers-Princeton IGERT
explores the connections between nanotechnology and clean energy with particular emphasis on
research that cuts across traditional disciplines and incorporates various areas of expertise. In this
presentation, we will highlight selected research activities in our IGERT that exemplify our program. For
instance, research related to improved efficiency in nanoparticle enhanced photovoltaic devices, the
effects of nanoscale materials in electrochemical devices, and scaling technologies for nanomaterials in
power electronics will be discussed. In addition to the particular research endeavors, this presentation
will demonstrate how the trainees are able to take advantage of a unique combination of resources
from multiple disciplines and geographically dispersed universities and institutes as part of a unique
community of scholars.
