Abstract

We report on bulk-heterojunction hybrid solar cells based on blends of non-ligand-exchanged CdSequantum dots(QDs) and the conjugated polymer poly(3-hexylthiophene) with improved power conversion efficiencies of about 2% under AM1.5G illumination after spectral mismatch correction. This is the highest reported value for a spherical CdSeQD based photovoltaic device. After synthesis, the CdSeQDs are treated by a simple and fast acid-assisted washing procedure, which has been identified as a crucial factor in enhancing the device performance. A simple model of a reduced ligand sphere is proposed explaining the power conversion efficiency improvement.
