Thin-film Silicon: Photovoltaics and Large-area Electronicsprovides a comprehensive treatment of thin-film silicon as a novel semiconductor material. Beginning with fundamental physical properties, it concentrates on device applications, solar cells in particular. Intended for both students and professional scientists, the book presents all the concepts required for understanding thin-film electronics.
It describes devices that use this technology, such as solar cells, thin-film transistors, and light and x-ray sensors. The author also discusses the limitations and design optimization of the devices, as well as fabrication methods.
