  4. Solar Cells Lecture 4: What is Different about Thin-Film Solar Cells?

    29 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

    Thin film solar cells promise acceptable efficiency at low cost. This tutorial examines the device physics of thin-film solar cells, which generally require a different type of analysis than crystalline solar cells.

  5. Solar Cells Lecture 5: Organic Photovoltaics

    29 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

    Organic solar cells make use of low-cost organic polymers forphotovoltaics. Although these solar cells may appear to be quitedifferent from solar cells made with conventional, inorganicsemiconductors (e.g. they make use of exciton generation rather than electron-hole generation) this...
