Potential Use of Solar Energy and Emerging Technologies in Micro Irrigation is a book that deeply emphasizes on the various kinds of applications that solar energy can have in the field of micro irrigation. The book explores areas in which the solar energy can be applied and the technologies that can be run on solar power. The book also explores the possible applications of current solar technologies in this field and throws some light on the ways in which the solar power can cut down the costs significantly and also reduce the pressure on other sources of energy.
Hemant is the founder and director of BM Renewables Pvt Ltd based in Canberra. Dr. Mulmudi obtained his PhD in materials science (2014) from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, his MS in nanotechnology from the Ulm University, Germany (2009), and his bachelor’s degree in metallurgical and materials engineering (2007) from the Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee, India. He is an expert in the field of solar energy generation, especially, with the third generation of solar cells such as dye-sensitized solar cells and halide based perovskite solar cells. He worked on cathodoluminescence spectroscopy to unravel the optoelectronic properties of halide based perovskite materials. Dr. Mulmudi also developed cross-sectional nanoindentation technique to evaluate the fracture toughness of single and multi-junction photovoltaic devices at the Australian National University, Canberra. His research highlights include the first demonstration of a low-temperature, solution based processing of flexible solid state perovskite solar cells (Chemical Communications 49 (94), 11089-11091) and also stable lead-free inorganic perovskite solar cell (Advanced Materials 26 (41), 7122-7127). He has published over 35 internationally acclaimed peer-reviewed journals, filed a provisional patent with IP Australia (IP right number: 2018902843) and has co-authored a book titled ‘Perovskite Solar cells: Technology and Practices’. He also delivers lectures on photovoltaic technologies as a casual academic at the Australian National University, Canberra.
