IAP 2006 Activity

The Fundamentals of Photovoltaics: Scientific, Engineering, Economic, Policy, and Market Dimensions
David Danielson, Adam Lorenz, Tonio Buonassisi
No limit but advance sign up required (see contact below)
Signup by: 05-Jan-2006
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)
Prereq: None

The aim of this course is to provide a broad overview of the scientific, engineering, economic, and policy drivers and challenges for traditional and next-generation photovoltaic technologies. The course will consist of a series of lectures featuring guests from the MIT community and beyond and tours of a local solar energy manufacturing plant and a PV installation at MIT. The technical emphasis of the course will be strong but balanced, to expand the horizons of both individuals with scientific & engineering as well as non-technical backgrounds.
