Description

Advances in Photovoltaics: Part Four provides valuable information on the challenges faced during the transformation of our energy supply system to more efficient, renewable energies.

The volume discusses the topic from a global perspective, presenting the latest information on photovoltaics, a cornerstone technology.

It covers all aspects of this important semiconductor technology, reflecting on the tremendous and dynamic advances that have been made on this topic since 1975, when the first book on solar cells—written by Harold J. Hovel of IBM—was published as volume 11 in the now famous series on Semiconductors and Semimetals.

Readers will gain a behind the scenes look at the continuous and rapid scientific development that leads to the necessary price and cost reductions in global industrial mass-production.

Key Features

  • Written by leading, internationally known experts on his topic
  • Provides an in-depth overview of the current status and perspectives of thin film PV technologies
  • Discusses the challenges faced during the transformation of our energy supply system to more efficient, renewable energies
  • Delves deep into photovoltaics, a cornerstone technolog

Readership

students, researchers, decision makers and the general public interested in getting familiar with these technologies, and may serve well as a preparation for taking a job in this rapidly expanding technology field.

About the Serial Volume Editors

Gerhard Willeke Serial Volume Editor

Gerhard Philipp Willeke was born in Dortmund, Germany, in 1954 as a German National.

He received a Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Dortmund, Germany, in 1979, and the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Dundee, Scotland in 1983.

From 1984 to 1989 he was with the Interuniversity Microelectronics Center, IMEC, Leuven, Belgium, where he worked on amorphous and crystalline silicon solar cell technologies as a Project Leader. From 1989 to 1999 he was a Research Assistant and Group Leader in the faculty of physics of the University of Konstanz, Germany, where he currently is a part-time Professor in experimental physics.

Since 1999 he is with the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg, Ger-ma¬ny, where he was head of the solar cell department between 2000 and 2006. Between 2007 and 2010 he was heading the newly founded Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics in Halle (Saale), a joint activity between the Fraunhofer Institutes for Solar Energy Systems ISE and Mechanics of Materials IWM. Since 2010 he is Manager Photovoltaics in the board of directors of Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg.

Gerhard Willeke has authored/co-authored 240 scientific/technical publications. He is member of the editorial board of the international journal ‚Progress in Photovoltaics‘. He served for many years as a member of the scientific/executive committee of the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition where he became conference general chairman of the 22nd EUPVSEC in Milano, Italy in 2007. Since 2010 Gerhard is ‘Institution Board Director’ of the International Solar Energy Society ISES and Chairman Photovoltaics of the Intersolar Europe Conference in Munich, Germany.

Gerhard Willeke is married since 1982 and has one son (born in 1983 in Dundee, Scotland) and two daughters (born in 1985 in Leuven, Belgium).
