Walajabad Sampath

Walajabad Sampath is focused on clean renewable energy sources. He and his research team are applying continuous, high-throughput processing methods to reduce the cost of making photovoltaic cells that will provide electricity more efficiently to communities in the U.S. and around the world. He is also doing research on light-emitting diodes that run off a battery and can provide enough power to operate a lightbulb for 20 continuous hours, providing 10 times more light than a candle and charged by a solar panel.
