This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the physics of the photovoltaic cell.The book 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-electricenergy conversion. This book is intended for upper-level graduate students who have areasonably good understanding of solid state physics and for scientists and engineersinvolved in research and development of solar cells.
Author Bio
Paula received her Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering in 2011from the Universidad de Cantabria in Spain, with an exchange programin Oregon State University in 2009-2010. She obtained her M.Sc. in Sustainableenergy technology in 2013 in TU Delft (Netherlands). Her M.Sc.thesis in the PVMD group dealt with Photoelectrochemcial devices forsolar water splitting. Since May 2014 she is a PhD student working onthe development and optimization of the monolithic photovoltaic (PV)/photoelectrochemical (PEC) devices based on earth abundant materialssuch as silicon and carbon with ground-breaking high solar-to-hydrogen (STH) conversion efficiencyfor water splitting.
