Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC)

The Department of Energy’s University of Texas at Austin Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC): “Understanding Charge Separation and Transfer at Interfaces in Energy Materials (EFRC:CST),” is focused on advancing the understanding and design of nanostructured molecular materials for organic photovoltaic (OPV) and electrical energy storage (EES) applications. OPV materials, including solar cells, and EES materials, including batteries for all-electric vehicles, are highly promising for future energy needs. The EFRC:CST is directed by Professor Peter Rossky and is composed of faculty members from UT’s College of Natural Sciences and Cockrell School of Engineering, as well as partnering researchers from Sandia National Laboratories. Approximately thirty graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are
supported by the EFRC:CST each year.
