Abstract:

The operating and failure mechanisms of Cu2S CdS thin film solar cells were examined further during the past year. The short circuit current of pilot production cells was found to be sensitive to the uniformity of Zn plating and to the texture of the metallized plastic substrate. Extensive literature and experimental studies on the various forms of cuprous sulfide were carried out. Author
