Bulk-heterojunction Solar Cells With Different Active Layer Blends: Comparison Of Experimental And Theoretical Results

Vishal Sharma; Vinamrita Singh; Manoj Arora; Swati Arora; R.P. Tandon

Volume 6, Issue 10 , October 2015, , Pages 920-923


  Bulk-heterojunction (BHJ) organic solar cells (OSCs) were fabricated with various active layer materials. Solar cells of configuration ITO/PEDOT:PSS/P3HT:PC61BM/Al, ITO/PEDOT:PSS/P3HT:PC71BM/Al and ITO/PEDOT:PSS/ PCDTBT:PC71BM/Al were fabricated. Current density-voltage (J-V) characteristics were measured ...  Read More
