MSE Seminar with Prof. Ted Sargent

MSE Seminar: Materials for energy capture, utilization, and storage

Speaker: Prof. Ted Sargent

University Professor and Canada Research Chair in Nanotechnology, University of Toronto

Date & Time: Tuesday February 25th at 12pm

Venue: Auditorium (Room 0215) between building 2 & 3

Light refreshments will be provided. 

Abstract: We carry out research on developing materials – such as perovskites, quantum dots, and nanostructured metals – that we use in making enhanced-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, as well as on electrocatalysts made using these emerging materials systems. I will update on progress in the modeling, synthesis, characterization, and performance of these materials and devices.


Biography: Ted Sargent earned the B.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Queen’s University (1995) and the Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from U of T (1998). He began a tenure-stream position in ECE at U of T in 1998 and today is University Professor and Canada Research Chair in Nanotechnology. His works have been cited 30,000 times [Scopus]. He founded InVisage Inc. and QDSolar Inc. and was a co-founder of Xagenic Inc. More information on his research is available at www.light.utoronto.ca.
