Thin-film InAs/GaAs quantum dot(QD)solar cells on mechanically flexible plastic films are fabricated. A 4.1-μm-thick compound semiconductorphotovoltaic layer grown on a GaAs substrate is transferred onto a plastic film through a low-temperature bonding technique. We also fabricatethin-film InAs/GaAs quantum dotsolar cells on Si substrates, as alternative low-cost, lightweight, robust substrates. The open-circuit voltages of the thin-filmcells on plastic and Si substrates are equal to that of the as-grown bulk cell on a GaAs substrate, indicating that no material degradation occurs during our bond-and-transfer process.
