Abstract:

This report gives a tentative explanation of the mechanism responsible for the photovoltaic effect in the thin-film CdS cells, and a discussion of critical experiments which might be performed to test this model. Also reported is the continuation of the work on the diffusion of copper into CdS single crystals, and this has been extended to include diffusion of Cu in the CdS solar cells. A new vacuum evaporation system for the project has been installed and is now operational. Author
