Student Projects

We offer a variety of research projects for students on topics pertaining to batteries, LEDs, and solar cells. Projects are interdisciplinary and can include either simulation or experimental work, based on student interest and background. Students interested in pursuing research at the Laboratory for Nanoelectronics should contact Prof. Wood to discuss available project offerings.
