- Tetsuo Soga, Nagoya Institute of Technology, Department of Environmental Technology and Urban Planning, Nagoya, Japan
Nanostructured Materials for Solar Energy Conversion covers a wide variety of materials and device types from inorganic materials to organic materials. This book deals with basic semiconductor physics, modelling of nanostructured solar cell, nanostructure of conventional solar cells such as silicon, CIS and CdTe, dye-sensitized solar cell, organic solar cell, photosynthetic materials, fullerene, extremely thin absorber (ETA) solar cell, quantum structured solar cell, intermediate band solar cell, carbon nanotube, etc. including basic principle and the latest results. There are many books written on conventional p-n junction solar cells, but few books focus on new concepts in this area.
This book is suitable as a guide for researchers, engineers, graduate/undergraduate students who have an interest in next generation photovoltaic solar cells using nanostructured materials.
