harnessing-the-sun-borisov-pyatnova  This book is about solar energy. It takes you on a journey in which
we explore different ways involving semiconductor technology. in
which this abundant form of energy could be utilised. The book was
written in an era when semiconductor technology was in its nascent
form. It describes the physical basis of semiconductor devices with
no formulae, but relying on analogies and models. It talks about
devices and mechanisms which belong to the future. For example a
solar powered satellite, which is the norm now. Lastly, it is about
coming of the solar age, which many of us are looking forward to
belong to….

Translated from the Russian by Igor Gavrilov and published by the Foreign Languages Publication House in 1963.
