We report the first observation of piezotronic effect on the output voltage of a flexible heterojunction solar cell. The solar cell was fabricated by contacting poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) with one end of a ZnO micro/nanowire to form a p-n heterojunction on a flexible polystyrene (PS) substrate. The open-circuit voltage V(oc) of the solar cell was… CONTINUE READING
