EFRC Science in Ten Hundred and One Words

The Ten Hundred and One Word Challenge invited the 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers to represent their science in images, cartoons, photos, words and original paintings, but any descriptions or words could only use the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language, with the addition of one word important to each of the EFRCs and the mission of DOE: energy. You can vote for your favorite entry from July 3-16, and the winners will be announced on July 18.


Our submission captures the essence of what the LMI-EFRC is about: controlling light to make the most energy from the sun!


Many thanks to those who contributed to our entry: Dennis Callahan, Chris Corcoran, Carissa Eisler, Cris Flowers, Matt Goodman, Carrie Hofmann and Bryce Sadtler.
