Prof Martin Green speaks at UNSW SPREE


The photovoltaic laboratories at UNSW commenced in 1974 when Prof Green joined the University. This presentation highlights some of the key events and personalities contributing to the subsequent 40 years history. See Stuart, Zhengrong and Alistair as young students, find out what led to the first 20% efficient silicon cell and the PERC cell, now becoming the industry standard, and find out about our recent 40% result.
