The Sun is a great gift from Allah. It gives us light and electricity. How does it give us electricity? With the advanced technology that we have today, we are able to transform light into electricity with solar cells.
Solar cells (or photovoltaic cells) are devices made of semiconductors that produce electricity by turning the direct rays of the sun into working electric energy . The first solar cell was produced by Daryl Chapin in Bell Laboratories in 1954.
Manufacturing solar cells is much like producing computers and memory chips because they have the same semiconducting materials . Factories today make screen printed poly- crystalline silicon solar cells.
