Northern Illinois University (NIU) is a comprehensive teaching and research institution with a diverse student body of more than 24,000. NIU opened in 1899 as the Northern Illinois State Normal School solely to prepare college-educated teachers. It became Northern Illinois State College on July 1, 1955, and Northern Illinois University on July 1, 1957. The university has since grown into a world-class university that attracts students from around the globe while still serving the northern Illinois region. The Illinois General Assembly granted NIU its own governing board in 1996. The university also operates education centers in Hoffman Estates, Naperville and Rockford to offer many of NIU's programs at times and locations designed to accommodate the needs of its vital service region.

Safer Lead-Based Perovskite Solar Cell

Researchers are reporting a potential breakthrough in the development of hybrid perovskite solar cells. Considered rising stars in the field of solar energy, perovskite solar cells convert light into electricity. They're potentially cheaper and simpler to produce than traditional silicon-based solar cells and, on a small scale in laboratory settings at least, have demonstrated comparable efficiency levels. But key challenges remain before they can become a competitive commercial technology.
