Rather, we focus on emerging, specialized methods that are relatively new in the ﬁeld but have a given relevance. This is why the title of the book addresses “advanced” techniques. However, new methods also need to be judged by their implication for photovoltaic devices. For this reason, an introductory chapter (Chapter 1) will describe the basic physics of thin-ﬁlm solar cells and modules and also guide to the speciﬁc advantages that are provided by the individual methods. In addition, we have made sure that the selected authors not only are established specialists concerning a speciﬁc method but also have longtime experience dealing with solar cells.
The present handbook aims to follow the line deﬁned by these tutorials, providing concise and comprehensive lecture-like chapters on speciﬁc research methods, written by researchers who use these methods as the core of their scientiﬁc work and who at the same time have a precise idea of what is relevant XXX Preface of the First Edition for photovoltaic devices. The chapters are intended to focus on the speciﬁc methods more than on signiﬁcant results. This is because these results, especially in innovative research areas, are subject to rapid change and are better dealt with by review articles.
This increasing specialization is a relatively new phenomenon in the ﬁeld of photovoltaics where during the “old days” everyone was (and had to be) able to handle virtually every scientiﬁc method personally. Consequently, it becomes nowadays more and more challenging for the individual scientist to keep track with the results obtained by specialized analysis methods, the physics behind these methods, and their implications for the devices. The need for more communication and exchange especially among scientists and PhD students working in the same ﬁeld but using very diﬀerent techniques was more and more rationalized during recent years.
