Faculty

We are excited to announce that Dr. Rebecca Page and Dr. Wolfgang Peti are relocating their research labs from Brown University to CBC@UA! this coming January to begin their new faculty positions as Professors of Chemistry & Biochemistry in the College of Medicine and the College of Science at The University of Arizona. Rebecca has been named the inaugural Donna B. Cosulich Faculty Fellow, which is supported by a CBC endowment received in 2012 from the Cosulich estate. Wolfgang will become the third CBC faculty member to hold the Homer C. and Emily Davis Weed Endowed Chair.

Research

Transfer of charges across the interface between an organic semiconductor and an optically transparent, conductive oxide (TCO) electrode, such as indium-tin oxide (ITO), is a fundamental process in the operation of organic solar cells (OSCs) and organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).

Students

Michael Manchester, a Tucson native and a senior majoring in Chemistry, recently was awarded a scholarship from the Arizona Society for Coatings Technology for his work on sulfur materials as prospects for thin film coating applications.
