Materials science encompasses four classes of materials, the study of each of which may be considered a separate field: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. This volume gathers important research from around the globe in this dynamic field including research on the effective thermal conductivity of fluid-saturated sandstones; the structural evolution and mechanical properties of nanocrystalline FeAl intermetallics; silicon based drug delivery systems; diradical based organic molecular magnetic materials; the mechanochemical effect of hematite; transparent conducting oxides for thin film solar cells and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) used in microfluidic devices.
Organic Solar Cells
This book delivers a comprehensive evaluation of organic and hybrid solar cells and identifies their fundamental principles and numerous applications. Great attention is given to the charge transport mechanism, donor and acceptor materials, interfacial materials, alternative electrodes, device engineering and physics, and device stability. The authors provide an industrial perspective on the future of photovoltaic technologies.
Focusing on the cutting-edge technologies available in the field of photovoltaics, "Solar Cell Nanotechnology" explores the latest research and development activities related to organic, inorganic, and hybrid materials being used in solar cell manufacturing. Several chapters are dedicated to explaining the fundamentals of photovoltaics and nanomaterials utilized in the manufacturing of solar cells.
