Modern Solar Cells Are Changing Rapidly – but The bases remains the same.
In this recorded lecture you will learn starting from the basics, the semiconductor nature of solar photovoltaic cells. Learn how the sun’s photons eventually cause electrons to flow in a ciruit connected to the right properly designed materials. Read more The Semiconductor Basis Of Modern Solar Cells ›
A perovskite solar cell is a type of solar cell which includes a perovskite structured compound, most commonly a hybrid organic-inorganic lead or tin halide-based material, as the light-harvesting active layer. The methods to manufacture these cells are very different from the silicon based solar cells that are so popular today. Read more How To Construct A Perovskite Solar Cell ›
