Published by Joshua Pearce
This is the fifth presentation in a series of five fully annotated presentations created for the solar energy community to assist in the dissemination of information about solar photovoltaic (PV) cells in 2006. They have been updated by students in MECH820, a graduate engineering course in photovoltaic materials, devices, and systems in 2010. In order to make these presentations more accessible some of them have been transformed to odp, an Open Office format. The full series can be found here:
