Dear IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu Members and Friends,
This issue of THE BRIDGE magazine highlights current research in solar
cell design. We appreciate the efforts of our guest editor Dr. Amirhossein
Ghods and the other authors. It is impossible to overstate the importance
of developing photovoltaic technology to address renewable and off-grid
energy needs. These global research efforts reflect an appreciation for
improving technologies with respect to both performance and fabrication.
Innovations that provide higher operational efficiencies and lower
manufacturing costs are essential for growth in the use of photovoltaic
energy technology.
The semiconductor solar cell was developed as a result of research
at Bell Telephone Laboratories. In 1940, Russell S. Ohl discovered
the semiconductor p-n junction and observed that light produced a
small electrical current. Further work by the Bell Labs team of Daryl
Chapin, Calvin Fuller, and Gerald Pearson led to the " Bell Solar Battery "
with an efficiency of about six percent. The demonstration of this first
practical silicon solar cell was in 1954. Technical development and
commercialization have proceeded since.
We welcome your feedback and remind you that THE BRIDGE is available
on the IEEE app as well as the magazine website. Each issue has a variety
of technical features, Chapter news, alumni notes, etc. If you enjoy this
issue, please check out the archive index of prior features on page 39.
