Ben Luginbuhl
6th Year Graduate Student
Materials Chemistry


I grew up in Flagstaff, Arizona and completed my B.S. in Biochemistry (ACS) at Northern Arizona University. My undergraduate research focused on developing sustainable electrode materials for multifunctional supercapacitor devices.  I worked in a joint research group led by Drs. Cindy Browder and Constantin Ciocanel.

My interests are in sustainable energy technology, including photovoltaics, batteries, and thermoelectric materials.


I'm currently interested in understanding the causes and effects of electronic traps in organic semiconductor devices, including organic photovoltaic cells, organic LEDs, and organic field-effect transistors.
