Basically, a solar cell comprises a p-n junction in which light energy (photons) causes electrons and holes to recombine Should replace "...electrons and holes recombin" with "...electron-hole pair generation". One needs to generated these charges that lead to the current, and that's the purpose of the light excitation! Recombination is a process to reduce or eliminate for high efficiency PV's

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
