Abstract:

The results of an experimental investigation on a newly-developed germanium PIN-photovoltaic cell are reported, covering measured data on the spectral response of this cell. Also reported are experimental data on the optical surface reflectance and an analysis of its influence on the true spectral response of the cell. Measurements of the cells output performance are reported for three different sources of chromatic radiation. These results are then compared to theoretical expectations derived from a computer analysis.
