Stanford’s MRS chapter is planning a company visit to bay area company Solar Junction. As you may know, Solar Junction is a concentrated PV company that was founded out of Stanford a few years ago and has since set the world standard for the highest efficiency solar cells. We’re planning a visit to their location in San Jose on Wednesday, May 8th in the late afternoon (~4pm).
In order to plan this trip, we need to get an accurate sense of who is interested in going. Spaces for this trip may be very limited, so please respond accurately! If you’re interested, please fill out the two-question survey below!
