Title:
High Efficiency Polymer Solar Cells with Long Operating Lifetimes

Peters, Craig H.; Sachs-Quintana, I. T.; Kastrop, John P.; Beaupré, Serge; Leclerc, Mario; McGehee, Michael D.
Abstract:
Organic bulk-heterojunction solar cells comprising poly[N-9'-hepta-decanyl- 2,7-carbazole-alt-5,5-(4',7'-di-2-thienyl-2', 1',3'-benzothiadiazole) (PCDTBT) are systematically aged and demonstrate lifetimes approaching seven years, which is the longest reported lifetime for polymer solar cells. An experimental set-up is described that is capable of testing large numbers of solar cells, holding each device at its maximum power point while controlling and monitoring the temperature and light intensity. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
