Introduction to Light Trapping in Solar Cell and Photo-detector Devices
- Stephen Fonash, Kunkle Chair Professor of Engineering Sciences and Director of the Center for Nanotechnology Education & Utilization, The Pennsylvania State University
This book highlights potential advantages of photonics and plasmonics and describes design optimization using computer modeling of these approaches. Its discussion of ultimate efficiency possibilities in solar cells is grounded in a review of the Shockley-Queisser analysis; this includes an in-depth examination of recent analyses building on that seminal work.
Audiencescientists and engineers working within solar energy conversion; graduate students working on photpvoltaics, professionals in the field looking to develop PV technologies
