Rethinking Solar Energy | Vladimir Bulovic | TEDxBeaconStreet

Vladimir dreams big, and aims to go small. So small, in fact, that he works on a cellular level. He has developed solar panels so thin, you can print them on paper, or lay a sheet of them over a window without obscuring the light. Imagine what the world would look like if any surface could be a solar grid; imagine how quickly we could change our carbon footprint if, for instance, all our mobile devices were self-powered. Vladimir imagines these things, and works to make them happen, in an inspiring blend of creativity and scientific genius.

Vladimir Bulović joined MIT in 2000 and is a Professor of Emerging Technology and the School of Engineering’s Associate Dean for Innovation. He leads the Organic and Nanostructured Electronics Laboratory and is co-director of the eni-MIT Solar Frontiers Center and MIT’s Innovation Initiative.

He is an author of over 140 articles and an inventor of over 50 patents in areas of light-emitting diodes, lasers, photovoltaics, and others. He has founded several solar and other technology companies. Prof. Bulović’s many awards include the U.S. Presidential Early Carrier Award for Scientist and Engineers and the National Science Foundation Career Award. In 2012, he shared the SEMI Award for North America in recognition of his contribution to commercialization of the quantum dot technology.

In 2008 he was named the Class of 1960 Faculty Fellow in recognition of his contribution to Energy Education, in 2009 he was awarded the Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellowship, MITs highest teaching honor.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
