Photovoltaic System and Its Components

The photovoltaic system, which is also referred to as  PV system or solar power system is a system that converts incident solar energy/ sunlight into usable electric power. In our today’s content, we will talk about the photovoltaic system and its components. Introduction Increasing global warming concerns and energy security issues have made solar energy […]

Secondary Emission

What is Secondary Emission? The phenomena of emission of electrons from the surface of solid metallic material by the action of a stream of charged particles is known as secondary emission or secondary electron emission. Caesium oxide is regarded as an excellent target material that holds the ability to release 10 times more current of […]

Thermionic Emission

What is Thermionic Emission? Thermionic emission is a single term that describes an act of liberation of ions when thermal agitation is provided. The combination of the words thermionic and emission to form a single term is used to describe the release of subatomic particles (specifically electrons) by the action of heat. This is so […]

Diffusion Current

What is Diffusion Current? The term ‘diffusion’ signifies a process in which there is a motion of molecules of substance from a region of higher concentration of lower concentration. Diffusion Current is defined as the current produced as a result of the motion of charged carriers due to the difference in concentration between two regions. […]

Drift Current

What is Drift Current? In a general sense, the term drift signifies motion or movement towards something. So, the use of the word “drift” with current corresponds to the generation of current due to some specific motion or movement. The drift current is defined as an electric current produced as a result of the motion […]
