Solar Cells Lecture 1: Introduction to Photovoltaics
19 Aug 2011 | Online Presentations | 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.
Solar Cells Lecture 2: Physics of Crystalline Solar Cells
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...
Solar Cells Lecture 3: Modeling and Simulation of Photovoltaic Devices and Systems
20 Jul 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): J. L. Gray
Modeling and simulation play an important role in designing and
optimizing PV systems. This tutorial is a broad overview of the topic
including a look at detailed, numerical device simulation.
Solar Cells Lecture 4: What is Different about Thin-Film Solar Cells?
29 Aug 2011 | Online Presentations | 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...
Solar Cells Lecture 5: Organic Photovoltaics
Organic solar cells make use of low-cost organic polymers for
photovoltaics. Although these solar cells may appear to be quite
different from solar cells made with conventional,...
