Abstract

Large area, crack-free GaInPGaAs double junction solar cells were grown by metal organic chemical vapor deposition on GeSi templates fabricated using wafer bonding and ion implantation induced layer transfer. Photovoltaic performance of these devices was comparable to those grown on bulk epi-ready Ge, demonstrating the feasibility of alternative substrates fabricated via wafer bonding and layer transfer for growth of active devices on lattice mismatched substrates.
