Enhanced Performance and Air Stability of 3.2% Hybrid Solar Cells: How the Functional Polymer and CdTe Nanostructure Boost the Solar Cell Efficiency



original image

A record high PCE of up to 3.2% demonstrates that the efficiency of hybrid solar cells (HSCs) can be boosted by utilizing a unique mono-aniline end group of PSBTBT-NH2 as a strong anchor to attach to CdTe nanocrystal surfaces and by simultaneously exploiting benzene–1,3-dithiol solvent–vapor annealing to improve the charge separation at the donor/acceptor interface, which leads to efficient charge transportation in the HSCs.
