It is a must read for anyone interested in the modern development of solar energy, BAperas dynamic life as one of the key movers in the field, and his world authority in CdS (Cadmium sulfide). It provides rare insight into the personal life of a scientist growing up in turbulent postwar Berlin. After his emigration to the USA and his transformation as a leader in solar energy, he set the direction for the future in significant ways: ac Bridged the divide between academia and industry ac Wrote over 350 science publications, dozens of books, and patents ac Created the most successful international solid state physics journal ac Promoted worldwide implementation of solar energy... since it proved he was aa man of the people, a willing to do simple manual labor, and he became a student again. ... theoretical subject, but his work on an electrical amplifier promised practical applications in improving radio receiving.
