How solar panels work
This online resource describes how photovoltaic cells work.
A Flash-based video describes how the photovoltaic effect works in the doped semiconductors used in solar panels to generate electricity.
This resource would be good for advanced students or for teacher background information.
This Flash-based resource will not work on the Apple iPad.
