Solar Cell Analysis Under Venus Atmosphere Conditions


Low-intensity high-temperature (LIHT) solar cells that can function and operate effectively in the Venus atmosphere at various altitudes and also survive on the 465°C surface of Venus are being developed. Thermal, high-temperature current-voltage, and external quantum efficiency (EQE) measurements are presented on GaInP/GaAs double-junction (2J) solar cells. Solar cell modeling under the atmospheric conditions of Venus used to guide the ideal solar cell structure design is presented.
