. Common analysis and measurement errors are discussed. This handbook shows how we can probe the underlying and highly complex physical processes using modern mathematical models and numerical simulation for optoelectronic device design, analysis, and performance optimization. The previous edition of this title was published as Handbook of Optoelectronics, 9780750306461. Publisher's Summary A discussion of how solar cell devices function, and of the parameters that control their operation. He is currently associated with the journal in an advisory capacity in which he facilitates special issues, as well as underrepresented and novel concepts and materials. Photovoltaics, or solar cells, are a viable option as a nonpolluting renewable energy source.
These include applications in the fields of electronics e. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less. Stressing the importance of material intermixing to improve the performance, we found that the presence of an acceptor may drastically alter the mobility and energetic disorder of the donor and vice versa. Optoelectronics of Solar Cells is designed to be an overview for those in the fields of optics and optical engineering, as well as those who are interested in energy policy, economics, and the requirements for efficient photo-to-electric energy conversion. The monograph focuses on the optoelectronic behavior of organic solids and their application in new optoelectronic devices. The majority of pages are undamaged with minimal creasing or tearing, minimal pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins.
All the fields are required so please make sure you complete them all otherwise we won't be able to send your message. Very minimal damage to the cover including scuff marks, but no holes or tears. All the models are incorporated in an automated analysis freeware tool. On a nanometer scale, materials or structures may possess new and unique physical properties. Send an email to Greg P. The text is designed as an overview for those in the fields of optics and optical engineering, as well as those interested in energy policy, economics and photo-to-electric energy conversion.
Despite electron-hole pairs being strongly bound in organic materials, the charge separation process following photo-excitation is found to be extremely efficient and independent of the excitation energy. With concerns about worldwide environmental security, global warming, and climate change due to emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels, it is desirable to have a wide range of energy technologies in a nation's portfolio. Brown, PhD, is chief executive officer of the American Institute of Physics and an adjunct full professor in the Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic at the University of California, Irvine. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include previous owner inscriptions. This text is designed to be an overview of photovoltaic solar cells for those in the fields of optics and optical engineering, as well as those who are interested in energy policy, economics, and the requirements for efficient photo-to-electric energy conversion. In 1994, he returned to the U.
Note: This kit is not manufactured, sold or distributed by Sol Ideas or Greg Smestad, Ph. As a Materials Scientist and specialist in solar concentrators, Greg P. This is a wide-ranging subject area and therefore requires the formation of multi-disciplinary teams of physicists, chemists, materials scientists, engineers, molecular biologists, pharmacologists, and others to work together on the synthesis and processing of materials and structures, the understanding of their physical properties, the design and fabrication of devices, etc. Smestad has worked as a scientist and engineer in the field of solar energy materials and optics since 1990. What is a solar cell? The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included.
His Bachelor of Science in Biology is from the University of Santa Clara in California 1983. This text is designed to be an overview of photovoltaic solar cells for those in the fields of optics and optical engineering, as well as those who are interested in energy policy, economics, and the requirements for efficient photo-to-electric energy conversion. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a given year e. The text is designed as an overview for those in the fields of optics and optical engineering, as well as those interested in energy policy, economics and photo-to-electric energy conversion. Philipps have taken the role as editors.
Author by : Greg P. The chapters comprise the know-how of more than a hundred experts from all over the world. Smestad's perspective and his role in its early development. This kit is designed to be used in a controlled classroom setting under the instruction of a teacher or adult , or by hobbyists who understand basic safety practices. Much emphasis is laid on the preparation of functional materials and the fabrication of devices, from materials synthesis and purification, to physicochemical properties and the basic processes and working principles of the devices. These devices are lightweight, highly efficient, low on power consumption, and are cost effective to produce. Forty such 4 Watt tubes were used in a completed module.
Thermal annealing and packaging processes are also covered, as key elements in a scalable manufacturing process. Smestad has served as an editor for Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells since its inception in 1990 through August 2016. Surprisingly, the Murgatroyd-Gill analytical model in combination with the Gaussian disorder model in the Boltzmann limit yields similar mobilities and energetic disorders as a more elaborate drift-diffusion model with parametrized mobility functionals. The majority of the fast charge carriers, mostly non-thermalized electrons, are extracted at time scales below the resolution of the experiment. It covers organic field-effect and organic electroluminescent materials and devices, organic photonics, materials and devices, as well as organic solids in photo absorption and energy conversion. Whether used as a reference, research tool, or broad-based introduction to the field, the Handbook offers everything you need to get started. The spine may show signs of wear.
Smestad served as an editor for Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells from 1990 to 2016. Smestad to serve the journal and the solar community. Acrobat reader - See Note. It reflects the wide availability of powerful computers and advanced commercial software, which have opened the door for non-specialists to perform sophisticated modeling and simulation tasks. The only book to cover fundamentals, applications, and the latest research results, this is a handy reference for both researchers and those new to the field.
