Efficient Organic Excitonic Solar Cells with Carbon Nanotubes Replacing In2O3:Sn as the Transparent Electrode (Presentation)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The conclusions of this report are that: (1) organic solar cells with efficiencies of up to 1.43% conversion efficiency that use no ITO and no PEDOT:PSS, are demonstrated; (2) a cell without ITO, but with PEDOT:PSS gave 2.6% conversion efficiency; (3) due to porous nature of SWCNT substrates, optimization of the active layer is essential; and (4) SWCNT electrodes bring one step closer the goal of a fully printable, organic solar cell.
