Dal engineer plans to make solar panels out of fabric
Dalhousie University Electrical Engineering assistant professor, Ghada Koleilat is launching a research program into the use of carbon nanotubes as photovoltaic cells that can be sprayed on fabrics.
These carbon nanotubes come as a powder that can be tuned into a dip or spray solution. Koleilat
says the sprays could be used to make wearable solar panels to power electronic devices such as health monitors.
Koleilat, is one of Fifty-seven Dalhousie researchers from six different faculties on campus who received more than $8 million in federal grants to support ongoing research programs with long-term goals.
This year's Dal recipients of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Discovery Grants were revealedlast Friday.
