Pearce Research Group

Welcome to the home of the Michigan Tech Open Sustainability Technology research group housed within the Departments of Materials Science & Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering. We are interested in exploring the way solar energy can be used to provide clean sustainable electricity through photovoltaic devices and how the sharing of open source hardware and software can create sustainable and equitable means of production

Areas of Interest

  • Photovoltaic Materials and Electronic Device Physics of Solar Photovoltaic Cells: Gallium nitride (GaN) and indium gallium nitride (InGaN), Hydrogenated amorphous and nanocrystalline silicon (a-Si:H, nc-Si:H)
  • Applied Sustainability and Green Engineering: Solar energy, Sustainable development, Open Source Appropriate Technology, and Energy Policy
  • Open-source 3-D printing, RepRap (self-replicating rapid prototyper), recyclebot (waste plastic recycling to 3-D filament, low-cost metal 3-D printing, distributed manufacturing, ethical filament
