Webinar Abstract:
Undoubtedly, the world is facing unprecedented natural disasters as the consequences of eminent global warming due to excessive usage of fossil fuels. Many developed nations are aligning themselves to alternatives to fossil fuels in their energy roadmap, attributing to the tremendous development of renewable energy resources in recent times. Over the past few decades, solar energy in the form of solar photovoltaics has proven to be the most potential renewable energy resource to date. We have come across solar cells of few generations after being demonstrated first at Bell Labs (with 6% conversion efficiency in 1954) to Giga watt-peak capacity solar farms for electrical power generation. So far, researchers around the world try to find energy harvesting in the form of electricity with many kinds of solar cells starting from inorganic silicon based to organic based ones. This seminar talk will the chronological history of solar cell technologies from inception to successful commercialization to date. This will definitely boost the hope for alternatives amid the imminent energy crisis era besides promoting enthusiasm among new generation as SDG7 of UN.
