Degradation and Failure Mechanisms of PV Module Interconnects in Durability and Reliability of Polymers and Other Materials in Photovoltaic Modules, 1st

Durability and Reliability of Polymers and Other Materials in Photovoltaic Modules describes the durability and reliability behavior of polymers used in Si-photovoltaic modules and systems, particularly in terms of physical aging and degradation process/mechanisms, characterization methods, accelerated exposure chamber and testing, module level testing, and service life prediction. The book compares polymeric materials to traditional materials …

Data Analytics Enables Significant Improvement of Robustness in Chemical Vapor Deposition of Carbon Nanotubes Based on Vacuum Baking

The root causes underlying run-to-run variations in the synthesis of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) by chemical vapor deposition can be attributed to the sensitivity of the process to small uncontrolled/unmeasured quantities of gaseous species in the reactor. Hence, universally applicable processing steps are needed to ensure consistency. Here, we quantitatively test the effectiveness of …
