For these last 2 episodes of the series of discussions on What is Solar Cell, I would like to share these efforts/work at different parts of the world on solar energy.  Solar cells are manufactured primarily in Japan, Germany, Mainland China, Taiwan, and United States, though many other nations have or are acquiring significant solar cell production capacity.  Here we will see some truly amazing advanced solar cell from Israel at:

Concentrated sunlight has been used to perform useful tasks from the time of ancient China. A legend has it that Archimedes used a “burning glass” to concentrate sunlight on the invading Roman fleet and repel them from Syracuse.  As seen in the video clip,  concentrated solar power are systems that use lenses or mirrors to concentrate a large area of sunlight, or solar thermal energy, onto a small area.  Electrical power is produced when the concentrated light is converted to heat that drives a heat engine (such as a steam turbine) connected to an electrical power generator.

Stay tuned for our next and final episode of What Is Solar Cell.  I hope these posts have proven to be helpful.
