Quantum dots for solar windows: Science for our nation's future

The Department of Energy sponsors a science communication competition among the Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRC). This year the challenge was to write a poem and generate an accompanying illustration that communicates the transformative energy technology research conducted at the EFRC to a general audience. Los Alamos' Center, the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics (CASP), contributed a submission titled "Quantum Dots for Solar Windows."

Please visit the DOE’s webpage to see the entries, and if you like the entry from CASP, select it as your vote. The deadline for voting is October 21st at midnight.
