A Solar Cell from a Material Science Perspective (NW) SLN 15852
Instructor: Alexander Uhl (Hillhouse Research Group)
Credits: 2, c/nc
Governments and leaders around the world agree that renewable energy, including photovoltaics, is the way of the future. This course strives to provide an introductory overview of climate change and renewable energy sources, the operational principles of solar cells, and the various deposition and characterization tools for thin film layers.
Two lab visits will offer a hands on experience of solar cell manufacturing and cutting-edge research facilities. In addition, two course quizzes and a final reflection paper are designed to strengthen your understanding of global warming, various photovoltaic technologies, and material science in general.
