Physicist Dr Jon Major teaches magnetic structure and function at the University of Liverpool. In 2014, he generated worldwide media interest when he found that an ingredient used in the production of tofu could also revolutionize the manufacture of solar panels – and was 300 times cheaper. Jon appeared on the University of Liverpool Podcast to discuss how he made his discovery – and what’s happened since.
