Spotlight on Matthew Marquardt’s Work on Solar-Powered Windows

Athletes have persistence, dedication, and grit according to Lynn Loo, director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and the Theodora D. ’78 and William H. Walton III ’74 Professor in Engineering. Matthew Marqardt, a junior on Princeton’s swimming and diving team and a chemistry major, applied those attributes in helping to launch solar-powered smart windows on campus. The project is a pilot installation of a technology that developed in Loo’s lab, which is being commercialized by her and co-founder Nick Davies’ startup, Andluca Technologies.
