Polymer Photovoltaic Cells with Conducting Polymer Anodes



Conducting polymer anodes for photovoltaic cells based on polyethylendioxythiophene (PEDOT) and its derivatives (see Figure) are reported. The results presented here show that it is feasible to use processable conducting (macro)molecular materials instead of indium tin oxide (ITO) for fabricating polymer photovoltaic cells, which could lead to lower cost and more mechanically flexible devices.
