Transparent conductive layers for organic solar cells - Simulation and experiment
- Thin metal films are a desirable alternative to indium tin oxide for utilization in organic solar cells (OSC).We describe background and processing parameters for thin metal films and show examples of top-illuminated OSC employing metal electrodes. Simulations are introduced as tool for OSC fabrication; several pitfalls are presented which must be considered for successful numerical treatment of thin-film layers at coalescence thicknesses and for coherent treatment. © 2009 SPIE.
