Title: Wireless solar cell array electrical interconnection scheme

Abstract: A simplified method and system for interconnecting solar cell arrays which does not utilize cause damage to the solar cells while at the same time minimizing process steps. In particular, in accordance with the present invention, interconnection between solar cell are made by way of a conductive epoxy, patterned on a substrate. The use of the epoxy eliminates the need for wire bonding as well as eliminates additional processing steps to interconnect the solar cell arrays.
