Read the review of Peter Lund in the International Journal of Energy Research:
"Flexible Solar Cells can be warmly recommended to everyone interested in solar electricity and its new developments. This is a necessary reading to understand how solar energy could grow from a marginal energy source today into a major global energy player in the future".

This book deals with one of the hottest fields of contemporary chemical and nanotechnology research: Flexible solar cells based on inorganic and organic photovoltaics.

Written in a clear, concise style, this book presents the scientific, technology and market aspects of thin-film photovoltaics, in the context of concomitant developments made in integrated PV-thermal technologies, and concentrated solar power generation.

Readers of the book will find in a single, updated volume plenty of relevant information.

Translation in Chinese

Flexible Solar Cells, the book of Mario Pagliaro and co-workers translated in in ChineseThe transalation of the book completed in late 2009,  the Chinese version of Flexible Solar Cells was published by Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press in January 2010.

Here is the message of the translator to the book's main author.

«Dear Professor Pagliaro,

«I'm the Chinese translator of your book Flexible Solar Cells... I'd like to thank you for your presenting us this wonderful book. It is informative, up-to-day and enlightening. It takes two and a half months for me to translate the book and I myself learned more about different kinds of solar cells during the project.

«The book will be published by Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press in months. I got my BS from Shanghai Jiao Tong University and MS from University of Central Florida, US.

«My background is Physics and more specifically Optics. However, I'm now in Photovoltaics and feel very lucky to have the chance of translating your terrific book.

«I believe your book translation will be very popular among Chinese readers, for the topic of flexible solar cells is so hot, but available instruction of it is little. Thank you for all you have done for the PV readers in the world and also in China!».
