Current Topics in Photovoltaics: v.3
Steady growth in the commercial application of solar cell systems has been achieved since the last volume of this series was published. In many parts of the world photovoltaics are being used in essential life sustaining or enhancing applications such as communications, water pumping, and vaccine refrigeration. Even in the more industrialized nations a growing number of uses are being found for photovoltaics, some of them far from essential, in areas which are surrounded by grid distribution systems. This new volume covers the latest advances in research and development, many of them in the amorphous field although progress continues with crystalline silicon and the II-VI and IIIV compounds.
