  9. 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.

  10. 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...

  11. Spin Transport and Topological Insulators I

    29 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    A major development of the last two decades, the physical and conceptual integration of what used to be two distinct unrelated fields, namely spintronics and magnetics.

  12. Thermal Transport Across Interfaces

    23 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher

    These lectures provide a theoretical development of the transport ofthermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials, in which materialinterfaces typically dominate transport. The physical nature of energytransport by two carriers: electrons and phonons--will be explored.

  13. Spin Transport and Topological Insulators II

    19 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    A major development of the last two decades, the physical and conceptual integration of what used to be two distinct unrelated fields, namely spintronics and magnetics.

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. Lecture 7: The Boltzmann Transport Equation

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

    Semi-classical carrier transport is traditionally described by the Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE). In this lecture, we present theBTE, show how it is solved, and relate it to the Landauer Approach usedin these lectures

  19. Lecture 9: Introduction to Phonon Transport

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

    This lecture is an introduction to phonon transport. Key similarities and differences between electron and phonon transport are discussed.
