Multi-Junction (MJ) Space Solar Cells

Induction year:

Multi Junction Space Solar CellsResponding to the need for higher efficiency solar cells, the Air Force Research Laboratory sponsored research and development efforts to produce high efficiency multi-junction space solar cells. MJ solar cell technology provides a direct replacement for lower efficiency single-junction cells. The end results are reduced space mission lifecycle costs, reduced customer costs for telecommunication, weather forecasting and many other services crucial to our daily lives on Earth.
