Lynn Loo


Materials scientist and Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton University; Director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment; Inventor of nanotransfer printing.

Advancements in energy technology is one of the Andlinger Center’s solutions to solving the Climate Change crisis, and one example of such technology is her thin-Film Technology — a lightweight, flexible, potentially low-cost way to literally paint solar cell technology directly onto surfaces. The process creates a 40-nanometer technology film, which is about the width of a human hair. “I am using the fundamentals I learned as a polymer scientist now to make solar cells, which is what I am passionate about,” said Loo.

Solar energy is just one of the many applications of thin-Film Technology. To learn more about Loo’s technological breakthroughs and the leading edge work being done at the Andlinger Center, watch the full show with Lynn Loo, above.
