Sun and solar panels shone bright at our 40th annual Research Expo, held on Thursday, April 14, 2022. Nanoengineering graduate student Tala Sidawi took home the grand prize for her work to model how solar panels “breathe” water in real time. Such a model could help researchers design solar panels that last longer and perform better in humid environments, and also cost less to build.
