    Efficiency Of Thin Film Solar Cells

    How does the efficiency of a Thin Film solar cell compare to the efficiency of a single crystal solar cell with reference to the 5 main solar cell parameters ( Iopt , Rs, Rsh, Is and n )? I know series resistance( Rs ) will probably increase in thin film cells because of grain boundaries...

    Solving the general Schodinger equation

    I think I have to find a way of getting values of R because I need to substitute them in equation 11 in order to get the value of psi.I really still don't understand what's going on in this question.If I need to evolve psi(x,0) then that means I will have to plot psi(x,0), psi(x,0.5) and...

    How to improve synchronous counter

    Assume a synchronous counter with the following counting sequence: 0 -> 1 -> 3 -> 2 -> 4 -> 6 -> 5 -> 7 -> 0 1.Produce the above counter next state equations. 2.Using positive-edge D-type flip-flops, 2-input OR and 2-input AND gates, sketch the circuit diagram of the above counter. 3.Given...

    Schools Foreign born Ph.D's in the US universities

    Zz is right, a postdoc doesn't help you get permanent residency, all it does is give you 2 more years to stay in the USA and look for jobs.It is almost impossible to get a job whilst outside the states. I'm only in my first year of university now but I've been researching on ways of getting...

    Why have two inverters in series?

    I was looking at the datasheet for the 74HCT139 and noticed that it's logic diagram consists of inverters in series, why is this? Aren't two logical inversions equivalent to no logical inversion at all? Datasheet(pg 4) :

    Programs UK Master Degree, requirements

    This link might be useful. It is highly unlikely that you will get rejected by all those universities - unless, of course, your first class degree does not conform with Bologna process standards.

    Not really interested in science subjects

    This is very true! Take this example, you might enjoy a Chemistry or other physical science degree but dread the job prospects that are open after completing the degree(probably because they will be very repetitive).You will be setting up the same basic experiments in the Lab day in day out for...
