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.

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.
