Assistant Professor, School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering
Nick Rolston is an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University and a Graduate Faculty in Materials Science and Chemical Engineering. He received his B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Iowa and his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University for his work on the characterization, design, and fabrication of rapid open-air processed thin-film perovskite photovoltaic devices, after which he spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher in Materials Science and Engineering. His research group at ASU focuses on understanding fundamental mechanical and material properties in thin-film energy devices on length scales from angstroms to meters and developing scalable, open-air deposition methods to produce robust, low-cost solutions toward the goal of manufacturing the next generation of renewable energy technology.
