Photovoltaics for Green Energy
For Spring 2023, SEE 894-G100 will cover the fundamentals of photovoltaics as a widely applicable method for sustainably generating electric power. Multidisciplinary coverage of the field is provided, encompassing aspects pertaining to materials science and engineering, device physics, manufacturing, and sustainability. Students will learn about the operational mechanisms of photovoltaic devices and the factors determining their efficiencies, the properties of commercial and emerging photovoltaic materials, the production processes of the various photovoltaic technologies developed to date, and their sustainability profiles. In addition to mainstream outdoor solar cells, emerging application areas such as building-integrated photovoltaics and indoor photovoltaics are also treated. The course includes guest lectures where specific photovoltaic technologies are discussed in terms of their industrial production, outlook, and sustainability potential.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
