Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
06 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education, Frank Fernandes, University of Wisconsin MRSEC
In this module, you will construct a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC). This device is essentially a photo-electrochemical cell, which means that a photo-induced chemical reaction causes electrons to travel from one material to another. DSC’s consist of a nanostructured semiconductor film...
3 min. Research Talk: The Agrivoltaic Simulation tool
23 Oct 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Hans Torsina
The Agrivoltaic Simulation tool will calculate based on the solar panel parameters, geometries, patterns, and tracking system to provide outputs of contour shadowmaps, solar and electrical power output plots, along with input-output tables.
ABACUS—Introduction to Semiconductor Devices
When we hear the term semiconductor device, we may think first of the transistors in PCs or video game consoles, but transistors are the basic component in all of the electronic devices we use in...
Energy Assurance with Renewable Generation
13 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Joydeep Mitra
This talk will discuss the most significant factors affecting energy assurance in the presence of renewable generation. It will investigate the use of energy storage to mitigate some of the challenges. It will discuss reliability metrics and targets, and a method for quantifying the notion of...
3 min Research Talk: Predicting and Optimizing Solar Cell Performance with Material/Surface Characteristics
31 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Yiheng Zhu
Photovoltaic simulation tools can be utilized to predict device performance before fabrication and experimentation, streamline research processes, and interpret experimental results. Therefore, we developed ContourPV, which simulates various combinations of values of different device...
