Gratzel is a professor at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland, where he directs the Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces. He pioneered research on energy and electron transfer reactions in mesoscopic-materials and their optoelectronic applications, and the use of nanomaterials in lithium ion batteries. He was awarded the 20120 Millennium Technology Prize for his inventing a new type of solar cell based on dye-sensitised mesoscopic oxide particles.
