Written by scientists from leading institutes in Germany, USA andSpain who use these techniques as the core of their scientific workand who have a precise idea of what is relevant for photovoltaicdevices, this text contains concise and comprehensive lecture-likechapters on specific research methods.
They focus on emerging, specialized techniques that are new to thefield of photovoltaics yet have a proven relevance. However, sincenew methods need to be judged according to their implications forphotovoltaic devices, a clear introductory chapter describes thebasic physics of thin-film solar cells and modules, providing aguide to the specific advantages that are offered by eachindividual method.
The choice of subjects is a representative cross-section of thosemethods enjoying a high degree of visibility in recent scientificliterature. Furthermore, they deal with specific device-relatedtopics and include a selection of material and surface/interfaceanalysis methods that have recently proven their relevance.Finally, simulation techniques are presented that are used forab-initio calculations of relevant semiconductors and for devicesimulations in 1D and 2D.
For students in physics, solid state physicists, materialsscientists, PhD students in material sciences, materialsinstitutes, semiconductor physicists, and those working in thesemiconductor industry, as well as being suitable as supplementaryreading in related courses.
