Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes a research initiative in photovoltaic solar cells that was funded by the Power and Energy Division, and established over the past year in the Electro-Optics and Photonics Division in collaboration with BAE Systems. In this report, we summarize the FY08 accomplishments, problems encountered, and plans for future work in this area. We report work on the design, fabrication, and testing of gallium arsenide GaAs-based single p-n junction solar cells. The report outlines ongoing technology transfer from BAE systems, relevant FY08 publications and acquisitions, and interactions with U.S. Army Research Laboratory ARL personnel, the Communications Electronics Research and Development Engineering Center CERDEC, the Natick Soldier Center, and the University of Delaware throughout the year.
