Week 8 – Prof Kylie Catchpole

Light it up!

The science of solar with Professor Kylie Catchpole 

Date: Tuesday 22nd March 2022 

Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm (AEDT) 

Kylie investigates how light interacts with semiconductors, so that better, cheaper solar panels can be designed.  She is part of a world-class research team looking at all aspects of how solar energy can become a major part of the world’s energy supply. Kylie’s research has discovered that covering solar cells with tiny particles of silver helps to absorb light better. 

Join us to hear about her journey to becoming a scientist who is looking at how to harness and improve renewable energy.
