Science of Clean Energy

ceilogoWe are building a comprehensive, college level (building on the UW Photonicswiki) that presents the fundamental science, research methods, and late breaking findings of CEI researchers. The program helps our interdisciplinary team learn to talk across departmental boundaries and forge innovative collaborations.

Many of the following resources were developed by CEI Students as their “Product of Lasting Value“.
