Abstract : The results of investigations dealing with a broad spectrum of topics in energy conversion are presented. The individual studies are: Techniques for fabrication of large, thin silicon single crystals; Cathodes for thermionic energy conversion; Carnot-limitation on efficiency of photovoltaic energy-converters; Transient photoresponse of solar cells from reverse to zero bias; Electric field effects on diffusion in silicon; Heterojunction photovoltaic energy converters; Apparatus for photochemical investigations; The photochemistry of perinaphthenone; The photochemistry of phenanthrenequinone; The unsensitized and sensitized photoreduction of disulfides; The photochemistry of 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene; Studies of charge transfer systems; Laser photochemistry; Diphenylpicrylhydrazyl as a calibration standard in electron spin resonance spectroscopy; Investigation of nitrogen-sulfur systems.
