Abstract

A simple method was developed using metal grid/conducting polymer hybrid transparent electrode to replace indium tin oxide (ITO) for the fabrication of inverted structure polymersolar cells. The performance of the devices could be tuned easily by varying the width and separation of the metal grids. By combining the appropriate metal grid geometry with a thin conductivepolymer layer, substrates with comparable transparency and sheet resistance to those of ITO could be achieved. Polymersolar cells fabricated using this hybrid electrode show efficiencies as high as . This method provides a feasible way for fabricating low-cost, large-area organic solar cells.
