Flexible thin film technologies find increased attention with device efficiencies approaching values comparable to rigid substrates. In particular the high power to weight ratio plus the superior radiation hardness of flexible thin film solar cells make them an attractive alternative to current technologies for space power generation. This contribution reports on latest advances in the development of prototypes of single Cu(In,Ga)Se/sub 2/ solar cells on titanium foil with a total area of 27 cm… CONTINUE READING
