I enjoyed this very short introduction to photovoltaic technology. Even though I'm a physicist, this is a topic that is not often discussed in typical college courses and the instructor has made the important details available here. I also appreciated the hands-on approach with the simulated solar cells and links to additional information.

I have learnt a lot. Helped me to understand all the concept required by a fresher in the renewable sector. Ranging from materials to spectrum analysis, generations of solar cells and even production of a solar cell. All the concepts helped me a lot. Looking forward to learning more in this field. Thank you for making this course.

I found this course very challenging (I am not an engineer) but also very interesting. There is a good combination of videos, reading and quizzes,
What I would suggest is to cover more the economics of solar cells, to understand how the various technologies fit in the value chain of the solar business.
