Paper Abstract

This paper describes InP solar cells which were made by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on GaAs-coated Si substrates. Various values of emitter thickness and doping levels were used for these cells. Air mass zero efficiencies of 7.1% were achieved with this material, and 9.4% with GaAs substrates. Various techniques have been developed for improving the material quality of GaAs-on-Si films, resulting in efficiencies as high as 18% AMO for heteroepitaxial GaAs cells; the efficiencies achievable if these can be successfully applied to InP are calculated.
