Laboratoire de Photonique et Interfaces (Grätzel's group) 
Affiliation : 
Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne
Research Activities :
Properties of colloidal aggregates and particulate suspensions. Photochemistry and photophysics of nano-structured molecular solids. Development of specific biosensors. Colloid chemistry and preparation of thin films. Nanocrystalline solar cells and photoelectrochemistry.
The Titania solar cell was invented at EPFL by Professor Michael Grätzel. Two excellent brochures available online describe the work principle of those devices: Nanocrystalline Electrochromic Devices  and Dye Sensitized Solar Cells based on nanocrystalline films 
The page provide links to research programs and group publications and PhD thesis since 1993
