The ANSER Center prides itself on the active participation of its undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers.
Taking Solar Technology up a Notch
New inexpensive, environmentally friendly solar cell shines with potential
Developing The Research Talent of Tomorrow
Graduate student Mike Vagnini successfully defends his dissertation. Mike's research developed through ongoing collaborations with ANSER researchers at Argonne National Labs, Yale University, and Northwestern University, taking advantage of the collaborative nature and resources that the ANSER Center offers.
The ANSER Center's Annual Symposium
The Argonne-Northwestern Solar Energy Research (ANSER) Center and ISEN are proud to host the 6th ANSER Solar Energy Symposium on May 9-10, 2013 on the Northwestern University Evanston campus. The focus of this year's symposium is "Solar Electricity," and we are excited to announce an all-star lineup of speakers for this event:
Prof. Stephen Forrest (Univ. of Michigan) (keynote); Prof. Marc Baldo (MIT); Prof. Christopher Bardeen (UC Riverside); Prof. Mario Leclerc (Université Laval); Prof. Michael McGehee (Stanford); Dr. Michael Woodhouse (NREL).

Five Research Organizations, One Team
The ANSER Center was founded in July of 2007 to create a joint research effort at Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory with selected groups from Yale University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Chicago in the area of solar energy conversion and solar fuels production. In 2009, ANSER received a $19 Million Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Together, our five institutions offer a critical mass of world-class researchers, with unique capabilities and facilities in materials synthesis, characterization, and theory. The nature and complexity of these problems requires an integrated systems approach and focused, team-oriented interdisciplinary research with close communication and coordination among team members. read more
The ANSER Center is organized around three basic research thrusts, each dealing with a solar energy conversion chain culminating in a specific end use.
The ANSER Center is pleased to announce Dr Stephen Forrest of the University of Michigan as its Symposium Keynote speaker! On May 9th, in Pancoe Auditorium, Dr Forrest will be giving a seminar entitled, "From Nanostructure to High Efficiency in Organic Photovoltaics."
