Photonic Design: From Fundamental Solar Cell Physics to Computational Inverse Design
by Owen D. Miller
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 136
This work unites fundamental physics and a novel computational inverse design approach towards energy-efficient photonic and optoelectronic devices. The book is devoted to the physics of high-efficiency solar cells and inverse design as a new computational paradigm in photonics.
