This book embraces a variety of materials concepts, from nanostructured and highly disordered organic materials to lead halide perovskite solar cells to provide an explanation of the operation of photovoltaic devices from a broad perspective.

The book establishes a simple but rich model of a solar cell and develops the photovoltaic operation according to fundamental physical properties and constraints. The book also establishes a more refined and realistic treatment of the many factors that determine the actual performance of experimental devices: transport gradients, interfacial recombination, optical losses and so forth. The book finishes with a short review of additional important aspects of solar energy conversion, such as the photonic aspects of spectral modification, and the direct conversion of solar photons to chemical fuel via electrochemical reactions.
