FY08 Final Report on Photovoltaic Solar Cell Research at BAE/ARL

Report No. ARL-TR-4845
Authors: Patrick Folkes, Parvez Uppal, and Paul Moffitt
Date/Pages: June 2009; 24 pages
Abstract: This report describes a research initiative in photovoltaic solar cells that was funded by the Power and Energy Division, and established over the past year in the Electro-Optics & Photonics Division in collaboration with BAE Systems. In this report, we summarize the FY08 accomplishments, problems encountered, and plans for future work in this area. We report work on the design, fabrication, and testing of gallium arsenide (GaAs)-based single p-n junction solar cells. The report outlines ongoing technology transfer from BAE systems, relevant FY08 publications and acquisitions, and interactions with U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) personnel, the Communications Electronics Research and Development Engineering Center (CERDEC), the Natick Soldier Center, and the University of Delaware throughout the year.
