_________________________________________________________________________________________

I realize that THIS note set cites few tutorial resources. That's because, having spent essentially all my career researching and teaching about the conversion light energy into electrical energy, I didn't have to draw upon external sources to author this note set. HOWEVER:

- If there is any part of this note set that you would like me to clarify and/or expand

- OR if YOU have identified particularly effective supplemental teaching resources on photovoltaics

Then PLEASE send me that information (via the site's Contact webpage: link) and I will either modify this note set and/or add links to those teaching resources on this page
