Abstract

Schottky solar cells have been fabricated using Cr Schottky metal on p-type silicon. AM1 sunlight efficiency of 6-9. 5% has been measured on 1-3 cm**2 area cells. Computer studies predict a quantum efficiency of 0. 71 for the Schottky cell which compares well to experimental data from 0. 35 to 1. 1 mu . Increased temperature decreases open circuit voltage by 2. 5 mv/ degree C and fill factor by 0. 4%/ degree C similar to previously published data on p-n silicon cells. Performance degradation with temperature cycling to 120 degree C has not been detected.
