Abstract:

The innovation in this Phase I SBIR is the development of a technology, which will enable the manufacture of a lightweight and low cost, InP wafer based high efficiency multijunction solar cells suitable for deployment in space applications. InP based based materials are best suited for space applications because of their demonstrated radiation hardness properties. The key technological step is the application of a production epitaxial liftoff (ELO) process to a multijunction solar cell structure fabricated on a large area InP substrate. Our focus will be on InP-based solar cells, in particular lattice-matched dual junction solar cell of InP and InGaAsP materials. InP solar cells in combination with GaAs based solar cells have the potential to achieve the highest efficiency ever to be produced by compound semiconductor materials
