Abstract

original image

A novel fabrication process for the efficient incorporation of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) into ZnO layers was developed, and this technique was used for constructing organic solar cells having a ZnO-based inverted structure with embedded SWCNTs. By SWCNT, significant enhancement in photovoltaic performance and stability of device was found.
