This introductory chapter briefly describes the book "Semiconductor Materials for Solar Photovoltaic Cells", coedited by M. Parans Paranthaman, Winnie Wong-Ng, and Raghu N. Bhattacharya (Springer US, 2015). This essential reference provides the most comprehensive presentation of the state of the art in the field of solar photovoltaics (PV). The growing field of research and applications of PV is currently being supported by numerous governmental, industrial, and educational initiatives in the United States, Asia, and Europe to overcome solar grid parity. The technology is particularly intended for increasing the usage of renewable energy resources for energy production. World-renowned authors explore the topic in nine entertaining chapters: (1) 3D Geometries: Enabling Optimization Toward the Inherent Limits of Thin Film Photovoltaics; (2) Earth Abundant Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 (CZTSSe) Solar Cells; (3) Cu2ZnSnS4, Cu2ZnSnSe4 and related Materials; (4) ZnO Doping and Defect Engineering; (5) Hydrogen Production and Photodegradation at TiO2/metal/CdS Sandwich using UV-Visible Light; (6) Organic Photovoltaics; (7) Organic Semiconductor-based Solar Cells; (8) Solar Cell Characterization; and (9) Applications.
