22.The crystal quality of the subcells was analyzed by high resolution x-ray diffraction measurements using a conventional Cu-K x-ray source. The x-ray beam size was 4 × 25 mm2, giving an accurate and representative estimative of the crystal diffraction condition, and therefore its lattice constant. (004) symmetric ω-2θ scans were performed to confirm that the material grown was lattice-matched to the InP substrate.

An approach for an all lattice-matched multijunction solar cell optimized design is presented with 5.807 Å lattice constant, together with a detailed analysis of its performance by means of full device modeling. The simulations show that a (1.93 eV)In0.37 Al 0.63As/(1.39 eV)In0.38Ga0.62As0.57P0.43/(0.94 eV)In0.38Ga0.62As 3-junction solar cell can achieve efficiencies >51% under 100-suns illumination (with Voc = 3.34 V). As a key proof of concept, an equivalent 3-junction solar cell lattice-matched to InP was fabricated and tested. The independently connected single junction solar cells were also tested in a spectrum splitting configuration, showing similar performance to a monolithic tandem device, with Voc = 1.8 V.
