E E 339S E E 339S. Solar Energy Conversion Devices. 3 Hours.
An investigation of basic principles of photovoltaic devices which convert light into charge carriers (electrons and holes). Topics include electrons and holes in semiconductors, generation and recombination, junctions, analysis of the p-n junction, silicon and III-V semiconductor solar cell design and optimization, thin film solar cell technologies, managing light, strategies for higher efficiency, and a brief overview of non-photovoltaic approaches to solar energy conversion. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Mathematics 427J or 427K, Physics 303L and 103N with a grade of at least C- in each.
Students seeking the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering pursue one of two curricula—electrical engineering or computer engineering. Both curricula contain the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer engineering; they differ in technical core requirements in order to suit different career objectives.
