one of the major worldwide experts in photovoltaics, will contribute to the photovoltaic courses of the REST (Renewable Energy Science and Technology) Master in 2015-16

He is famous for his outstanding contributions to photovoltaic science and technology. These include identifying the fundamental limits upon silicon solar cell performance and then leading his team to demonstrate experimental devices approaching this limit, with 25% cell efficiency now demonstrated. This is over 50% relatively higher in performance than at the beginning of his work. He has also developed innovative commercial versions of these high performance devices and pioneered the field of “third generation” photovoltaics, investigating advanced photovoltaic device concepts targeting Carnot-like solar conversion efficiencies.

Prof. M. Green is also the Editor-in-chief of the Journal “Progress in Photovoltaics”
