This course really had some rough spots. I believe the rough spots were being worked out as the class was progressing along, for example sound quality on instructional videos. timing of the final. Dec 20 -31. The TA S seem very busy putting out fires and not helping students.

The lecture video and problems are repeated from last year class, there is nothing new.

Focus on Solar Cell too much since Prof. Clemen's research interest/area is solar cell.
