Nanostructured Schottky inorganic-organic solar cells provide overall power conversion efficiencies exceeding 3%, with extremely large short-circuit photocurrents. The device EQE faithfully tracks the absorptance of the CdSe nanorods, and the IQE is approximately constant over the entire visible spectrum as opposed to a p-n junction hybrid solar cell fabricated with a highly absorbing organic polymer.
