Abstract:

Efforts to improve the yiel of large area single crystal gallium arsenide as well as supplying crystal for solar cell fabrication c ntinued. Several steps in the solar cell fabrication process, currently in use, were examined carefully in an attempt to improve cell efficience or increase the potential production rate. Con iderable attention was devote to the means for applying solder contacts to the solar cell. Studie ere made of various wafer polishing techniques and their effect on cell efficiency the deposition of a silicon monoxide antireflection coating on wavers the evaluation of solar cell p-n junction characteristics using pilot line cells and solar simulation.
