Title: Integral glass encapsulation for solar arrays. Quarterly progress Report No. 12, October 11, 1979-January 10, 1980

Abstract

This is the twelfth quarterly report under a JPL/DOE program for the development of electrostatic bonding as a method of integral encapsulation of solar cells in glass. Efforts for the current phase of this program are to continue to demonstrate process uniformity of electrostatic bonding encapsulation. Additional goals of this program are to develop preformed (wire mesh) contacts as a method of integrating cell processing into the encapsulation procedure resulting in a low cost module assembly technique, and to investigate low-temperature bonding to commercially available glass (pyrex) substrates. Progress is reported.
