About the Harvard CEP
The Harvard CEP is a partnership between the Aspuru-Guzik Group and the IBM World Community Grid that was launched to address the challenges associated with formulating the chemical structure of novel high-performance organic photovoltaics (OPVs) using computational materials science. Carbon-based solar cells have emerged as interesting alternatives to traditional photovoltaic technology. OPVs have great potential in two important areas: they promise simple, low-cost/high-volume production as well as the prospect of merging the unique flexibility and versatility of plastics with opto-electronic features. These properties make OPVs a promising candidate to achieve the widespread harvesting of solar energy.
One GB is equal to one billion bytes, and one TB equals 1,000 GB (one trillion bytes). Actual capacity will vary depending on operating environment and formatting.
