Dye-sensitised solar cell inventor awarded 2012 Albert Einstein award

The 'father' of the dye-sensitised solar cell (DSC), Professor Michael Grätzel, is being awarded the 2012 Albert Einstein World Award of Science by the World Cultural Council.


He is receiving the award for "his outstanding achievements in inventing and developing the Grätzel Cell", also known as the dye-sensitised solar cell, as well as the dye-sensitised solar cell's capability to increase the spread of renewable energy.


"Not only is this a tremendous mark of respect for Professor Grätzel by the global scientific world, it is also an overwhelming vote of confidence in Dyesol and the future of DSC applications," says Dyesol Director, Gordon Thompson. Grätzel, who is the Director of the Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, is also the Chairman of Dyesol's Technology Advisory Board.


The 29th World Cultural Council Award Ceremony will be held in Denmark on 18 April 2012.
