Abstract

image

A record power conversion efficiency of 12.2% is achieved for a hybrid organic-inorganic Schottky solar cell using a simple and low temperature (<150 °C) process. The heterojunction diode based on a simple integration of organic thin layers and silicon promises a low cost way to fabricate high performance solar cells.
