Impact of Equipment on Teaching
The sourcemeter will be used for the first time during the summer 2012 CSSI program. This summer the sourcemeter will be used to obtain IV curves for dye sensitized solar cells that will be assembled by CSSI students. The IV curves will allow the students to compare difference solar cells and determine relative efficiencies.
