Fabrication and Characteristics of Fullerene–Perylene Dyad Based Organic Photovoltaic Cell
Abstract:Fullerene is an acceptor material which is used most usually in organic photovoltaic cell. By the way, the reduction of electron mobility and the phase separation of conducting polymer and fullerene in the actual bulk heterojunction photovoltaic cell limit further improvement of device performance. In order to overcome the problems, fabrication of hybrid planar mixed heterojunction cells and synthesis of donor–acceptor dyad have been studied. In the present work, we have synthesized fullerene–perylene dyad to improve the fullerene based photovoltaic cell. In order to explore the properties of the synthesized material, the measurements of absorption spectrum and energy level were carried out. We have investigated the energy conversion efficiency of organic photovoltaic cell consisting of ITO/PEDOT-PSS/MEH-PPV:fullerene–perylene dyad/Al.
