Paper Abstract

The Amorphous Silicon Research Project (ASRP) was established at the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) in 1983 and is responsible for coordinating all U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research activities in amorphous silicon photovoltaics. The strategy, objectives, and research directions of the project have been established by a five-year research plan, which was published in 1984. The technical plan of the ASRP is organized into two principal activities: multidisciplinary activities and fundamental research activities. Near-term objectives (early 1987) for single-junction cells and submodules are efficiencies of 12% (for an area of 1 cm2) and 8% (for 1000 cm2), respectively; for multi junction cells, the near-term goal is an efficiency of 13% (for 1 cm2).
