The National Science Foundation has awarded $299,769 to Jackson State University.

The money will go toward funding a project entitled “RII Track-4:NSF: Understanding Perovskite Solar Cell Passivation at The Level of Organic Functional Groups through Ultrafast Spectroscopyā€¯ and is under the direction of Qilin Dai. The project provides a fellowship to an assistant professor and supports a JSU graduate student with a training opportunity in ultrafast spectroscopy.

The principal investigator (PI) and the graduate student will have a six-month visit at Emory University to extend their expertise to ultrafast spectroscopy for the JSU research community.
