The loss through recombination of minority carriers generated deep within a silicon solar cell is a limitation on the efficiency and radiation resistance of present devices. In this work the authors have explored the potential of multijunction silicon solar cells prepared by diffusion and epitaxial techniques for improved efficiency and radiation resistance. Two-junction diffused cell structures were found to offer improved performance for very thin wafers. Author
