Course and Exercise “Physics of solar cells”

Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rolf Brendel, 2 + 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Leibniz Universität Hannover

This course deals with the basics of semi-conductor physics and all physical processes which are important to the function of a solar cell. At the same time, in particular, the optical characteristics of the semi-conductor, the trapping of light in the solar cell, the transport of electrons and holes as well as the recombination of charge carriers are considered. The course gives an introduction into the production and experimental characterization of solar cells. The physical limits of the efficiency levels of solar cells are calculated. The course is aimed at students of physics and engineering science from the fifth semester onwards.


Course “Defects in semiconductors”

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Jan Schmidt, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Leibniz Universität Hannover

The electronic and optical properties of semiconductors are often determined by defects that are introduced unintentionally (e. g. by crystal growth and processing) or intentionally (e. g. as doping). This course deals with thermodynamics, kinetics and structure of such defects with special emphasis on semiconductor-specific problems, concepts and methods. In addition to the fundamental treatment of the relevant approaches, cross-links to technological applications in photovoltaics, microelectronics and optoelectronics are discussed.


Course and Exercise „Operating principle and technology of solar cells“

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Robby Peibst, 2 + 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (MBE)
Leibniz Universität Hannover

Participants receive detailed basic knowledge of the functionality of silicon solar cells and their manufacturing technology, an understanding of the efficiency limits and loss phenomena actually occurring in solar cells as well as basic knowledge of component and process characterization.


Course „Introduction to electronic measurement data acquisition and processing with LabView“

Lecturer: Dr. Carsten Schinke, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Leibniz Universität Hannover

The course gives an introduction to the principles of electronic measurement data acquisition and processing with the LabView graphical programming environment often used in research and industry. The focus is on the compilation of measurement data with data acquisition cards as part of small experiments carried out on the PC and the subsequent further processing of this data with the PC. In addition, the physical principles of the functioning of the sensors used and the principles of the systematic consideration of measurement uncertainties are also considered.


Advanced practical: „Analysis of solar cells“

Lecturer: Dr. Carsten Schinke, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Leibniz Universität Hannover

This course gives practical experience with the help of experimental apparatus for the recording of current-voltage characteristics of solar cells and studying the luminescence emission of solar cells. Students carry out their own experiments under supervision and evaluate the results. In this way knowledge of handling modern electrical measuring equipment is acquired and critical evaluation and discussion and presentation of their own results is practiced.


Course and Exercise „Solar energy systems I: Thermodynamic principles“

Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Kastner, 3 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
Leibniz Universität Hannover

This course provides the scientific-technical principles for the evaluation of thermal solar systems and their integration into energy supply structures. The focal point here are the thermodynamic and fluid-dynamic methods which are required for the representation and evaluation of solar thermal systems. This particularly concerns balances of thermo- and fluid dynamics, stationarity and non-stationarity, local and integral formulations, solar irradiation and its terrestrially usable fraction, momentum and energy transport in solar thermal systems, solar collectors, efficiency levels, modeling and calculations, heat pumps, heating networks and storage.


Course and Exercise „Solar energy systems II: Components and systems“

Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Kastner and contributions of lecturers of ISFH and KEAN, 3 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
Leibniz Universität Hannover

Building on the “Solar Energy I” course, this course gives a summary of the current position with technical solutions to problems and their integration into the energy system. It is undertaken in a collaboration between the Institute for Thermodynamics of Hanover University, the Solar Systems department of the ISFH and the District Heating Research Institute, Hanover.

Contents of the course: Low-temperature solar collector technology, optical coating technology, building integration, solar-thermal central heating, near-surface geothermics and solarthermics, district heating through local heating and district heating, geo-supported seasonal storage, PV-based heating concepts, Big Data: monitoring of complex heating supply systems.


Course “Current research topics in photovoltaics”

Lecturers: Dr. Carsten Schinke, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rolf Brendel, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Leibniz Universität Hannover

Students are trained to give good scientific technical presentations. The supervisors make specialist literature available describing current research results from photovoltaics. By studying this literature and literature sources they have found themselves, students acquire in-depth subject knowledge. Following an introduction to scientific presentation, test lectures are then given. Finally the students give each other presentations and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their technical lectures.


Course “Present physics – Physics of energy conversion”

Lecturers: Dr. Henning Schulte-Huxel,Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rolf Brendel, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Leibniz Universität Hannover

In this course students learn and deepen presentation techniques and literature research based on the issue of energy conversion from renewable and conventional sources. The focus lies on the physical fundamentals and processes for providing electrical power using renewable and conventional techniques. In the field of renewable energies, this includes wind, water and solar energy. In addition, we look at the structure, components and functionality of thermal power plants from a physical point of view. Different sources of thermal energy, such as combustion of fossil raw materials and renewable heat sources, will also be dealt with.


Course “MOS transistors and memory devices”

Lecturers: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tobias Wietler, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Leibniz Universität Hannover

This lecture course covers the basic principles of MOS-systems, the MOS capacitor and MOSFETs device physics from simple models to scaling issues of modern MOS technology generations. MOS-based memories like SRAM, DRAM, CCD and flash-memories are also discussed. In a laboratory workshop, students examine the characteristics of MOS capacitors and MOSFETs.


Course “Bipolar devices”

Lecturers: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tobias Wietler, 2 Semester credit hours
Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Leibniz Universität Hannover

This lecture course looks into basic semiconductor physics including charge carriers in semiconducting materials, current transport mechanisms and generation and recombination processes. This forms the base for the discussion the static and dynamic characteristics of pn-junctions, metallsemiconductor junctions and semiconductor heterojunctions including a brief introduction to optoelectronic devices.
