The power conversion efficiency of polymer solar cells today has passed 10%, the commonly acceptable value for commercial usage. However, in general labs, the power conversion efficiency routinely achievable is only at 3–5% because of the lack of effective tools to optimize the device design and the fabrication process. Instead of using trial-and-error experiments to improve the power efficiency, modeling and simulation provides an alternative, effective, and economical way to optimize the… CONTINUE READING
