Pegah Maasoumi - Solar Windows

Pegah Maasoumi (ARC Centre of Excellence for Exciton Science) told the FameLab 2018 National Final about her plans to revolutionise your home’s windows.

Solar energy is one version of cheap energy. It is easy to install couple of solar cells on the roof, however, in large cities, most people live in tall towers with no individual roof. My work will help everyone even in tiny apartments to get access to cheap energy. Every window or sound barriers in highways would act as solar cell by harvesting the sun light. My research not only will provide cheap energy even to city folks. but also, will be beneficial toward global warming.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
