Experiment M0003-4: Advanced solar cell and coverglass analysis, an overviewThe experiment consists of 51 coverglass samples and 12 solar cell strings. Sixteen of the coverglass samples were on the leading edge and 16 on the trailing edge. An additional 16 samples were used as control samples and were not flown. The scenario for analysis was established for the coverglass. A photographic and Namarski survey were taken. Selected sites were then analyzed using surface analysis techniques. The coverglass samples are analyzed in their dirty condition for optical transmission, reflectance, and absorbance. The solar cells were visually inspected and photographed. Tape recorder data is analyzed and selected cell strings are evaluated for their electrical properties.
