RadHard

Multi-junction solar cells for satellites

In RadHard we develop multi-junction solar cells for satellites with significantly improved radiation hardness and conversion efficiency. For this we develop novel semiconductor structures by a combination of metal-organic-vapor-phase-epitaxy and wafer bonding. Such solar cells will be superior for all missions with high electron and proton irradiation.
