Abstract:

THIS RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE FEASIBILITY OF FABRICATING RADIATION-RESISTANT HIGH EFFICIENCY SPACE SOLAR CELLS FROM INDIUM PHOSPHIDE. RESEARCH IN PHASE I IS DIRECTED AT THE EVALUATION OF PRESENT-DAY PROCESSES FOR (1) CELL FABRICATION AND INCLUDES (1) CELL MODELING TO DETERMINE OPTIMAL CELL DESIGN, (2) PROCESS RESEARCH TO EVALUATE FABRICATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS ION IMPLANTATION, AND (3) PROTOTYPE CELL FABRICATION TO EVALUATE THE CELL FABRICATION TECHNIQUES UNDER INVESTIGATION. THE CELL STRUCTURE TO BE INVESTIGATED IS THE CONVENTIONAL P/N JUNCTION. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE OF PHASE I IS THE IDENTIFICATION OF A FEASIBLE SOLAR CELL FABRICATION PROCESS FOR THIS STRUCTURE. PHASE II WILL COMPRISE IN-DEPTH RESEARCH OF ASPECTS OF CELL FABRICATION AS WELL AS INVESTIGATIONS OF RADIATION SENSITIVITY OF THE DEVICES.
