Abstract : This report covers the progress on the High Volage Solar Cell Array Segment for the period 1 Apr to 1 July, 1966. Suitable photoresist techniques for web silicon were developed during this period and critical alignment and coating techniques were designed. The utilization of subcollectors for the high voltage cell is discussed. A model for the high voltage cell was set up and analyzed. The power losses in herent in the structure and the approaches needed to solve them were investigated and reported. Development of the oscillator and multiplier circuits was continued. (Author)
