The Center for Hybrid Organic-Inorganic Semiconductors for Energy (CHOISE) brings together world-leading experts to enable new insights and advances not otherwise possible in spin dynamics, hot-carrier utilization, and light emission.

CHOISE is an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.
