Nicholas (Nick) Hight-Huf has joined NREL's Solar Photochemistry group under the mentorship of Garry Rumbles and Obadiah Reid to focus on fundamental aspects of charge generation in organic semiconductors. Nick is employing time-resolved techniques including microwave conductivity, transient absorption, and photoluminescence, thermodynamic and kinetic models for the generation of free charge in organic donor-acceptor films, which are being developed. Nick brings experience employing specific spectroscopic and scanning probe characterization techniques to understand the electronics at micro- and nano-structured interfaces to help realize the next generation of materials for energy applications.
