Abstract : The emphasis during the Third Quarter was placed on a continuation of experiments necessary to the understanding of the thin film CdS solar cell. Included were diffusion and solubility measurements of copper in CdS, perfection of a new vacuum evaporation system, and measurements of the index of refraction and absorption coefficients of evaporated thin Cu2S films as a function of wavelength.
