Abstract : The objective of this work has been to continue the necessary applied research to obtain experi mentally the necessary techniques for fabricating a thin film photovoltaic converter using a chem ical spray process. The general feasibility of this chemical spray process was demonstrated. The initial investigation has been on cadmium plated spring steel and cadmium plated phosphor bonze. The foils used are approximately 8 mils thick to facilitate handling. (Author)
