- This is the ninth quarterly report under a program to develop integral glass encapsulation for solar cell arrays. The status of development of the techniques for employing electrostatic bonding in conjunction with terrestrial solar cells is described. Functioning solar modules have been made by electrostatic bonding (ESB) in several configurations, including ESB total glass encapsulation, ESB/PVB hybrid encapsulation, and ESB front/organic back systems. All have shown no noticeable degradation, electrically or mechanically, in accelerated testing. These tests show that electrostatic bonding will be fully capable of meeting the specification of a 20-year lifetime in a cost-effective manner.
