Research output: Book/ReportBook


This chapter contains sections titled: This chapter reviews a few of the essential technologies around the organic photovoltaic (OPV) science that are relevant for the realisation of solution-processed bulk-heterojunction solar cells. It begins with a discussion on the various aspects of morphology formation in organic bulk-heterojunction solar cells. Then, the chapter provides a review of the progress in selected interface materials, which are decisive not only for the solar cell performance but also for the long-time stability of the solar cells. Next, the chapter presents and reviews the concept of multilayer solar cells or tandem solar cells for OPV. Following this, a section explains the relevant design criteria for electrodes suitable for OPV. Finally, the chapter is concluded by a review of the overall production process, especially the printing processes for the semiconductor layer. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved.
