FIG. 2.

Transmission spectra of the different front electrode materials with a PEDOT:PSS film. The transmission spectra were recorded using an integrating sphere to capture directly transmitted light and forward scattered light. The samples were illuminated through the glass substrate to mimic the same illumination geometry as the test cell evaluation conditions.

Abstract

Random silver nanohole films were created through colloidal lithography techniques and metal vapor deposition. The transparent electrodes were characterized by uv-visible spectroscopy and incorporated into an organic solar cell. The test cells were evaluated for solar power-conversion efficiency and incident photon-to-current conversion efficiency. The incident photon-to-current conversion efficiency spectra displayed evidence that a nanohole film with diameter holes induces surface-plasmon-enhanced photoconversion. The nanohole silverfilms demonstrate a promising route to removing the indium tin oxide transparent electrode that is ubiquitous in organic optoelectronics.
