Jackson State University Launches Four New Research Projects With Princeton University

Jackson State University researchers, in collaboration with Princeton University, have begun a second round of projects aimed at addressing some of the nation’s most difficult challenges. The program is funded by the Princeton Alliance for Collaborative Research and Innovation (PACRI) and was developed in partnership with the United Negro College Fund. Each project receives up to $250,000 in funding for a duration of two years.

* Green Solvent-Based Processing and Passivation of Metal Halide Perovskites for Solar Cell Application

* Sustaining Black History through a Regenerative Future: The Margaret Walker Center at JSU

* Optical Preparation and Read-out of Nanosystems Used for Quantum Information Applications

Two research projects were begun last fall and our continuing into their second year:
