Abstract
THE EPITAXIAL GROWTH OF NOVEL II-VI SOLAR CELL STRUCTURES WILL BE INVESTIGATED. IN PHASE I, THE METAL ORGANIC CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (MOCVD) PROCESS PARAMETERS AND ASSOCIATED GROWTH CHEMISTRIES FOR AN EPITAXIAL P-I-N, ZNTE/CDTE/GAAS, SOLAR CELL STRUCTURE WOULD BE DEVELOPED. THE SOLAR CELL STRUCTURE WOULD BE GROWN AS A CONTINUOUS STRUCTURE WITHIN A SINGLE PROCESS REACTOR. FILM THICKNESS AND COMPOSITIONAL UNIFORMITY, AND ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES WOULD BE MEASURED. A TEST SOLAR CELL WOULD BE FABRICATED AND EVALUATED IN PHASE I. PHASE II WOULD BUILD UPON PHASE IOPTIMIZING THE CELL STRUCTURE AND THE MOCVD GROWTH PROCESSES. THE STRUCTURE IS SUITED FOR SUBSEQUENT INCORPORATION WITHIN SUPERLATTICE OR RAINBOW SOLAR CELLS.
