Abstract

Inorganic nanorod/conjugated polymer composites are advanced materials for photovoltaics. It is shown that a post-synthesis treatment of PbS nanocrystal/poly(2-methoxy-5-(2-ethyl-hexyloxy)-p-phenylene vinylene) (MEH-PPV) composites, synthesized by a low-temperature and surfactant-free method, results in the controlled assembly of nanorods through oriented attachment of PbS nanocrystals.
