Abstract

We proposed and demonstrated a simple tandem structure of organic photovoltaic(PV)cell for efficient light harvesting. In this device structure, a soluble fullerene derivative of [6,6]-phenyl--butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) is employed simultaneously to form a bilayer heterojunctionPV subcell with the underlying copper phthalocyanine (CuPc) and a bulk heterojunctionPV subcell with blended poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT). In comparison with the conventional tandem structure, the omission of the semitransparent intercellular connection layer reduces the complexity of the device and the light loss. The enhanced short circuit current density and power conversion efficiency (PCE) (2.79%) of the tandem structure are nearly the sum of those of the stand-alone cells of CuPc/PCBM (, ) and P3HT:PCBM (, ).
