Abstract

High efficiency multi-junction solar cells utilizing inverted metamorphic1,2 and semiconductor bonding technology3 are being developed at Spectrolab for use in one-sun space and near-space applications. Recently that effort has been extended to include low-concentration space applications. This paper will review the present state-of-the-art cell technologies at Spectrolab, with an emphasis on performance characterization data at both 1-sun and low-concentration operating conditions that these cells will experience in flight.. A cell coupon utilizing IMM solar cells has been assembled and subjected to thermal cycling. Pre-and post thermal cycling data have been collected and there is no performance degradation or mechanical issues after the test.
