Abstract
In this SBIR Phase I program, we propose to fabricate high-efficiency and radiation hard solar cells based on InGaN material system that can cover the whole solar spectrum by adjusting the alloy composition. The main program objectives include the fabrication of InGaN-based solar cells on large diameter substrates, with external efficiency in excess of 35%, and capable of long life operation in high radiation environment of space at elevated temperatures.
