The high school student who never even embarks on her science career, because she’s been conditioned to believe she can’t be successful. These are just a few examples of the stereotyping and gender bias that hold women back in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (collectively referred to as “STEM”). Now, through a powerful gift from two of the nation’s…

Polymer plastic solar cells remain an industry priority because of their light weight, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Now scientists from Stony Brook University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) have demonstrated that these types of solar cells can be more efficient and have more stability based on new research findings. Led by Miriam Rafailovich, PhD, a Distinguished Professor at Stony Brook University, and Chang-Yong Nam, PhD, a scientist at BNL and Adjunct Professor at Stony Brook, the research team discovered that by adding a common inert polymer, called polystyrene, these solar cells undergo an optimized internal morphology, resulting…
