Intro[edit | edit source]

I am a freshman working toward a bachelor's degree in physics with minors in honors, math, and nanotechnology at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. I am interested various topics dealing with energy, physics, and chemistry. For my Excursions in Nanotechnology class, I am currently working on various topics dealing with sustainable development, energy and electricity, and, of course, new developments in the ever changing field of nanotechnology.

Topics of Interest[edit | edit source]

These various topics are all areas of science that I am currently exploring, either through my nanotechnology class or on my own time.

Current Projects[edit | edit source]

  • I have decided to do a research project on gallium arsenide solar cells. Click on the previous link to see the project page. In this page information is given on how a nanotech gallium arsenide solar cell can be fabricated, works, and the benefits to using this type of energy production.

  • A web resource that details the creation and distribution of energy through a self made power-plant. On this page the reader will gain detailed information on how to do everything from creating a power source, routing the electricity, using it efficiently, and even how to trouble shoot the apparatus. Safety measures are also outlined. This was originally a document from the Microfinche Reference Library. Check it out at Rural Electrification Systems.

Search Results[edit | edit source]

The following links have material relevant to the research I am conducting. More links to material pertaining to my research is present on the their respective pages.

  • Key Words Photo Voltaic/Nanotechnology

  • Key Words gallium arsenide/solar cells

Discussion[View | Edit]

Lit review[edit source]

Ben -- good start but you need to be more thorough with the lit review -- keep track of locations searched and search terms and keep a master list. It is also a good idea of keeping the Titles in your list so that it is easier to see what is what. Finally -- I have a copy of the PVSC conferences papers dating back to the beginning in my office you can use to get a good idea of exactly where you are going.--Joshua 14:20, 1 February 2008 (PST)

GaAs[edit source]


Make sure you are concentrating on nanotech based GaAs solar cells -- also after the article is written go back through the category tree and make sure you add category tags to place your article in all the correct places. Already in your intro paragraph lots of key words that already exist in appropedia -- make sure to put double square brackets around them.

Molecular Beam Epitaxy[edit source]

Hello Ben, I'm a student at Queen's University working on a materials processing project using Appropedia. I had intended to do my project on Molecular Beam Epitaxy, but have noticed that you already have a stub related to that topic started. You haven't made any further modifications to the page since April, but I want to make sure I'm not hijacking some work you wished to do. Do you mind if I take over the page for a few months while I work on my project? --C.Cochrane 15:23, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Rural Electrification Systems[edit source]


I want to reuse some of the content in Rural Electrification Systems in some other articles but I can't figure if I am allowed to.

You note that this is copied from the MICROFICHE REFERENCE LIBRARY. What is this? Do you have any other info on what we are and are not permitted to do with this document? Joe Raftery 16:17, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
