Summary

The conceptual picture of a solar cell has evolved in the last two decades, a broad landscape of candidate materials and devices were discovered and systematically studied and reported. New concepts and a rather powerful picture embracing very different types of devices has emerged from many discussions and sometimes also conceptual clashes. The Complete Physics of Solar Cells: The Fundamentals and Foundations of Perovskites introduces the main physico-chemical principles that govern the operation of energy devices.

The handbook presents an explanation of the operation of photovoltaic devices with a broad perspective that embraces concepts from nanostructured and highly disordered materials to highly efficient devices such as lead halide perovskite solar cells.

Additional features include:

  • Embraces concepts from nanostructured and highly disordered materials to lead halide perovskite solar cells.
  • Highlights recent rapid advances with the discovery of perovskite solar cells and their development.
  • Takes a broad perspective and comprehensively addresses the fundamentals so the reader can apply these and assess future developments and technologies in the field.
