Using an alternate arsenic source, namely, Tertiary Butyl Arsine, a concentrator GaAs solar cell has been grown in a low pressure metal organic chemical vapor deposition reactor. Under 72 sun, air mass 1.5 illumination, the cell had an open circuit voltage of 1.1 V, a fill factor of 83% and an overall efficiency of 21%.
