Physics & Astronomy Senior Capstone Presentations

3:30 PM  - 4:30 PM
Friday Apr 20, 2018
Olin-Rice Science Center 150

Paul Chery will give his capstone presentation, "Modeling Recombination in Solar Cells."

Solar cells are a competitive alternative to nonrenewable energy sources such as fossil fuels. However, the efficiency of these devices is limited by photogenerated carrier recombination. I use a numerical model to study recombination phenomena in the absorber layer of solar cells including alternate recombination models and the effects of spatial distribution of recombination centers.
