Conjugated polymer-based organic solar cells.
This review gives a general introduction to the materials, production techniques, working principles, critical parameters, and stability of the organic solar cells, and discusses the alternative approaches such as polymer/polymer solar cells and organic/inorganic hybrid solar cells.
Current versus gate voltage hysteresis in organic field effect transistors
Research into organic field effect transistors (OFETs) has made significant advances—both scientifically and technologically—during the last decade, and the first products will soon enter the market.
Flexible, long-lived, large-area, organic solar cells
Abstract We report herein large area (>10 cm 2 ), interconnected organic solar cell modules both on glass substrates as well as on flexible ultra-high barrier foils, reaching 1.5% and 0.5% overall
A new encapsulation solution for flexible organic solar cells
Abstract We report herein a shelf lifetime study of poly(2-methoxy-5-(3′,7′-dimethyloctyloxy)-1,4-phenylene-vinylene) (MDMO-PPV) : 1-(3-methoxycarbonyl) propyl-1-phenyl[6,6]C61 (PCBM) solar cells
Hybrid solar cells using PbS nanoparticles
Solution-processed bilayer heterojunction hybrid solar cells have been fabricated using size-quantized PbS nanoparticles and poly (3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT). PbS was used as an electron-transporting
Low Band Gap Donor-Acceptor Conjugated Polymers toward Organic Solar Cells Applications
Mixtures of conjugated polymers and fullerenes command considerable attention for application in organic solar cells. To increase their efficiency, the design of new materials that absorb at longer
Flexible, conjugated polymer-fullerene-based bulk-heterojunction solar cells : Basics, encapsulation, and integration
Organic solar cells based on conjugated polymer:fullerene blends show nowadays efficiencies above 4%. After briefly presenting the science of bulk-heterojunction solar cells, we report herein a shelf
In situ spectroelectrochemical characterization of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)
The electrochemical polymerization of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT), in diAerent electrolyte‐solvent media was studied with cyclic voltammetry, in situ UV‐VIS-spectroelectrochemistry,
Processable Multipurpose Conjugated Polymer for Electrochromic and Photovoltaic Applications
A benzotriazole and 3-hexylthiophene (3HT) bearing a donor−acceptor−donor (D-A-D) type conjugated polymer (PHTBT) was synthesized. The polymer is both p and n-dopable, fluorescent, soluble in common
Vibrational signatures of electrochemical p- and n-doping of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) films: an in situ attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) study☆
Abstract The vibrational spectroscopic properties of electrochemically synthesized poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) films were studied with in situ Attenuated Total Reflection Fourier
