Abstract

Spectrolab introduces its latest multi-junction solar cell with efficiency at maximum power at beginning of life of 28.0° (AM0. 28°C, 135.3 mW/cm2) and 22.6% at 60°C after 15 years in GEO orbit. The space-qualification program employed for the Ultra Triple Junction (UTJ) solar cell is the most comprehensive to date, leading the way to improving on-orbit performance predictions. The UTJ cell is currently in qualification and is expected to be in production 2Q 2003.
