Building on Soft Foundations: New Possibilities for Controlling Hybrid Photovoltaic Architectures

The deposition of highly crystalline ZnO onto P3HT using pulsed laser deposition at low temperature is discussed. To demonstrate the applicability of the technique the preparation of a conventional architecture hybrid photovoltaic device is outlined for the first time. No degradation of the microstructure, optical or electronic properties of the P3HT are observed. The methodology is widely applicable for depositing oxide interlayers and optical spacers in multilayer organic devices.
