How does a solar cell work?

Solar energy is a renewable free source of energy that is entirely sustainable and inexhaustible, unlike fossil fuels that are finite. Moreover, Fossil fuels produce large quantities of CO2 when burned. Carbon emissions trap heat in the atmosphere and lead to climate change. In the United States, the burning of fossil fuels, particularly for the power and transportation sectors, accounts for about three-quarters of our carbon emissions. Solar panels convert the sun’s light into usable electrical energy. We are going to explain how a semiconductor p-n junctions works and converts energy of photons into electricity.

Catching the Next Wave

This movie is a simulation showing movement of a fluid inside a rectangular cavity. The fluid is heated from above and cooled from below, resulting in a stable temperature stratification. When the cavity is oscillated up-and-down, the fluid experiences an instability which develops into a full-fledged wave-breaking event. The movie illustrates this event over ten oscillation periods, using the temperature to visualize the flow. The simulation was conducted over one month on the ASU Agave supercomputer. Brought to you by postdoctoral scholar Jason Yalim and associate professors Juan Lopez and Bruno Welfert.

What is chaos? How is it different from randomness?

Science develops models that help us make sense of the patterns we see in the world. Without those models, the world appears to be random – a product of chance. But as we gain knowledge, we learn that there are patterns, and knowledge of those patterns makes the world seem less random and more deterministic. But what if there were systems that behaved randomly even if you knew everything about how the system works? These are special kinds of complex systems that are said to be chaotic. Here we explore how chaos is the apparent randomness from ordered complex systems.
