Abstract : A method is provided for forming a multi-cell photovoltaic circuit on an insulating substrate, comprising the steps of forming a photovoltaic junction between p-type and n-type layers in a silicon wafer; bonding the silicon wafer to an insulating substrate after forming the photovoltaic junction; patterning the silicon wafer to produce isolated photovoltaic cells; and electrically interconnecting the photovoltaic cells.
