MINT Leads International Effort to Develop Alternative Material for Green-Energy

A scientist who directs a University of Alabama research center will lead a collaborative, international effort to find an alternative source material necessary to sustain the growing electric-energy movement. Dr. Takao Suzuki, director of UA’s Center for Materials for Information Technology, or MINT, is leading an approximate $1.6 million effort by a consortium that includes 13 other UA researchers along with scientists in Germany, Japan and elsewhere in the United States.
