Description

Considerable research on the advances in Dye Sensitized Solar Cells has been carried out in recent years, this is the first reference to put those advances in perspective and show how the solar cell industry can benefit.

Dye Sensitized Solar Cell Mathematical Modelling, Optimization and Design is an edited volume from leaders in the field, covering advances in DSSC design and fabrication, mathematical modelling and optimization. It provides a comprehensive coverage of various DSSC advances with modelling including different system scales from electronic to the macroscopic level, consolidating results along with the fundamentals, and presents them in a systematic way.

The book is useful for graduate students and researchers as a monograph and as a reference for state-of-the-art techniques in modelling, optimization and design of DSSCs.
