  5. Design of Optoelectronically-active Polymers for Organic Photovoltaic Applications

    01 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Bryan W. Boudouris

    Organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices are of great interest due to their promise of providing flexible, lightweight, and inexpensive alternatives to their currently-used inorganic counterparts. However, large-scale implementation of these modules has been hampered due to their relatively low power...

  13. NEGF theory of quantum photovoltaic devices

    21 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Urs Aeberhard

    Many high-efficiency photovoltaics concepts require an advanced control and manipulation of the optoelectronic properties of the active device structure, leading to a prominent role of low dimensional absorbers such as quantum wells, wires and dots in the implementation of these concepts....

  14. Economic Factors on the Modern Photovoltaic Market

    14 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Gregory T. Forcherio

    Photovoltaic research is heavily driven by market demand and "green-energy" hopes of the future. Commercial and utility level thin film photovoltaic systems have almost reached grid parity worldwide, but the residential market, mainly comprised of crystalline and polycrystalline...

  15. Optimum Morphology and Performance Gains of Organic Solar Cells

    20 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Biswajit ray, Muhammad Alam

    Morphology of light absorbing layer is known to dictate the power conversion efficiency of organic photovoltaic (OPV) cell. The innovation of bulk heterojunction (BHJ) led to significant improvement for exciton harvesting, but carrier recombination at the distributed interfaces and variability...

  16. 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.

  17. 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...

  18. Solar Cell Fundamentals

    19 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom, J. L. Gray, Muhammad A. Alam

    The modern solar cell was invented at Bell Labs in 1954 and is currently receiving renewed attention as a potential contribution to addressing the world's energy challenge. This set of five tutorials is an introduction to solar cell technology fundamentals. It begins with a broad overview of...

  19. Solar Cells Lecture 1: Introduction to Photovoltaics

    19 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    An introduction to solar cells covering the basics of PN junctions, optical absorption, and IV characteristics. Key technology options and economic considers are briefly presented.

  20. Solar Cells Lecture 2: Physics of Crystalline Solar Cells

    19 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    Solar cell performance is determined by generation and recombination of electron-hole pairs. This tutorial focussing on recombination losses in crystalline silicon solar cells under short-circuit and open-circuit conditions.
