A method includes growing a first epitaxial layer of III-nitride material, forming a damaged region by implanting ions into an exposed surface of the first epitaxial layer, and growing a second epitaxial layer of III-nitride material on the exposed surface of the first epitaxial layer. A level of defects present in the second epitaxial layer is less than a level of defects present in the first epitaxial layer.

A device, system, and method for solar cell construction and layer transfer are disclosed herein. An exemplary method of solar cell construction involves providing a silicon donor substrate. A porous layer is formed on the donor substrate. A first portion of a solar cell is constructed on the porous layer of the donor substrate. The solar cell and donor substrate are bonded to a flexible substrate. The flexible substrate and the first portion of a solar cell are then separated from the donor substrate at the porous layer. A second portion of a solar cell may then be constructed on the first portion of a solar cell providing a single completed solar cell.

A device, system, and method for solar cell construction and bonding/layer transfer are disclosed herein. An exemplary structure of solar cell construction involves providing a monocrystalline donor layer. A solder bonding layer bonds the donor layer to a carrier substrate. A porous layer may be used to separate the donor layer.

A device, system, and method for a multi junction solar cell are described herein. An exemplary multi-solar cell structure can have a substrate having a first surface having a (111) crystalline etched surface. A dielectric layer can be deposited on the first surface of the substrate. A graded buffer layer can be grown on a second surface of the substrate with the second surface having a (100) crystalline surface. A first solar subcell within or on top of the graded buffer layer and a second solar subcell grown on top of the first solar subcell.
