Abstract : Effort was continued on investigating ways and means of constructing developmental models of a close-spaced, thin, solar power converter using the photoemissive principle. This presentation discusses the progress made in the fabrication of component parts for the thick-glass, closespaced phot generators WX-4966 and WX-4967, describes the successful deposition of an S-11 photosurface in the WX-4220 coating control tube, and describes a vacuum processing fixture presently being made for in-vacuum sealing and processing of the photoemissive solar power converter.
