Organic solar cells : An overview

  title={Organic solar cells : An overview},
  author={Harald Hoppea and Niyazi Serdar Sariciftci},
Organic solar cell research has developed during the past 30 years, but especially in the last decade it has attracted scientific and economic interest triggered by a rapid increase in power conversion efficiencies. This was achieved by the introduction of new materials, improved materials engineering, and more sophisticated device structures. Today, solar power conversion efficiencies in excess of 3% have been accomplished with several device concepts. Though efficiencies of these thin-film… CONTINUE READING
