Title: Development of copper sulfide/cadmium sulfide thin-film solar cells. Fourteenth technical progress report, October 1, 1982-December 31, 1982

Abstract

We have shown that all of the laser-treated, thin-film Cu/sub 2/S/CdS solar cells made at Westinghouse show less degradation on aging in a wet oxygen ambient than do untreated, control cells. Differences in the effects of laser treatment are attributed to variations in optical absorption which are related to the details of cell processing.
