The reported work is on a PEM for producing p-type gold-doped germanium detectors, type IR400. This report covers the seventh quarter of the contract period. Work during this period was concentrated on the preproduction phase of the contract. The preproduction samples were completed during this quarter, and preliminary data show the cells to be acceptable. Final testing has been delayed, but will be completed after approval of the preproduction test facilities has been received. The test procedures were given considerable attention during this period and they appear in the appendix to this report. A proposal for a life test program to be conducted during the production phase of the contract was submitted. This program is an attempt to establish failure modes of the detectors, and to learn more of their aging or storage characteristics. Author
