S34: Solar Cell Fundamentals in Splash Fall 2012 (Oct. 14, 2012)
Solar power is on everybody's mind, but how do solar cells work and why isn't everything run by solar power already? This course will explore what it means for light to be emitted or absorbed and how light energy can be harvested as electricity or stored chemical energy. We'll build a simple solar cell from berry-juice and titanium dioxide (white paint) and explore how it works. We will also briefly touch on the current challenges in solar technology.
