Abstract p +/n + InGaAsP tunnel diodes with a bandgap of 0.95 eV were fabricated by liquid phase epitaxy and their electrical properties were characterized. Forward conductances of 500 Φ−1 cm−2, peak current densities of 28.5 A/cm2 and peak to valley current ratios of 14.3 were obtained at room temperature. These devices were incorporated successfully as Intercell Ohmic Connections (IOCs) for an InP-based, two-terminal monolithic multijunction tandem solar cell.
