About This Project

Freeze-casting is an environmentally friendly process used to fabricate porous materials. We are utilizing the freeze-casting technique in microgravity to improve overall efficiencies in dye-sensitized solar cells. Masking the force of Earth's gravity allows us to study the underlying principles of the technique. This offers a unique opportunity to improve the freeze-casting method for use on Earth!
