to commercialization. Polymer solar cells have evolved as a promising cost-effective alternative to silicon-based solar cells. Some of the important advantages of these so-called ‘plastic’ solar cells include low cost of fabrication, ease of processing, mechanical flexibility and versatility of chemical structure from advances in organic chemistry. However, low efficiency of these plastic solar cells limits their feasibility for commercial use. The efficiencies of polymer photovoltaic (PV… CONTINUE READING
