Abstract
ITN Energy Systems, Inc. (ITN) intends to meet the requirements (W/kg) for future high-altitude airship and spacecraft power by developing >20% efficient two-terminal monolithic tandem (multi-junction) photovoltaic (PV) cells using low-cost thin-films onlightweight flexible substrates. ITN will achieve this goal using thin-films of high-efficiency and radiation resistant copper indium diSelenide (CIS) and bandgap tunable CIS-alloys with Ga and/or Al. As an intermediate goal to this large endeavor, ITNis developing a
