Research and development of photovoltaic solar cells is playing an ever-larger practical role in energy supply and ecological conservation all over the world. Many materials science problems are encountered in understanding exising solar cells and the development of more efficient, less costly and more stable cells. This book offers an historical overview of this field, concentrating primarily on exciting development since the late 1980s. It describes the properties of the materials that play and important role in photovoltaic applications, the solar cell structures in which they are used, and the experimental and theoretical developments that have led to the most promising contenders.
