In-situ structural and compositional analysis of as-prepared opto-electronic polymer devices has been carried out by TEM and cryogenic Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS). For solar cells based on poly(1,4-phenylenevinylene) (PPV)-C60 derivatives, diffusion of electrode materials (Al and In) into the polymer layers is minor, and spontaneous stratification of the two components does not occur as can be seen from the cover.
