The enhancement of polymeric solar cells through the addition of nanostructured material complexes has been investigated. These novel materials are intended to facilitate exciton dissociation and carrier transport through the polymer matrix. The dispersion of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) into poly(3-octylthiophene)-(P3OT) has been shown to dramatically improve both the electrical conductivity and optical absorption of the polymer compared to the pure polymer. The photoresponse of solar…
