Welcome to the Gordon Lab website. We specialize in the deposition of thin films using both chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and alternating layer deposition (ALD). For more information, explore the links above.
To sustain human civilization in the future, clean energy sources must be harnessed to replace the fossil fuels that are now polluting our atmosphere. Solar and wind energy can supply all the necessary energy. However, storage will be needed when the sun is not shining and the wind is not blowing.
With funding from Harvard University's Climate Change Solutions Fund (CCSF), Professor Roy Gordon has received an award for research that will focus on lowering the costs of solar energy, developing thin-film technology by depositing vapors on ordinary window glass, using abundant and nontoxic materials. Gordon Group member Robert Gustafson will be working on this project.
