Abstract

Aligned carbon and titanium dioxide nanotubes are designed at the electrode interface to improve the charge separation and transport. The resulting organic photovoltaic wire exhibits high power conversion efficiency. This flexible photovoltaic wire can be easily integrated into a textile by a conventional weaving technique.
