Hybrid solar cells: An overview of their main characteristics, state of the art and applications

Loading Events

At present, the performance of organic solar cells (OSCs) based on a bulk heterojunction (BHJ) structure has been remarkably improved, with their efficiency having increased from around 3% to more than 17%. This presentation starts with a brief introduction on most common sources of electrical generation, indicating their position with respect to contamination aspects. Afterwards, we focus on solar cells, and more specifically on organic solar cells, putting emphasis in their distinct properties, operating principle, advantages, and main problems. Important parameters for evaluating energy sources are mentioned, to compare OSC with other energy sources. Special attention is paid to their degradation problems, which represent one of the main obstacles to overcome for their commercial application. We discuss some strategies to improve device lifetime, including the selection of different materials as transport and buffer layers. Finally, we discuss aspects of their manufacturing process, as well as recent important applications that have been developed, which suggest that a promising future for this technology is becoming nearer.
