A new method for electropolymerization of polythiophenes as anode buffer layer in combination with a PEDOT:PSS buffer in P3HT–PCBM solar cells is introduced. This approach uses a stack of PEDOT:PSS and electropolymerized polythiophene (ePT) as an anode buffer layer. A significant improvement in the short circuit current is seen in solar cells with additional thin buffer layers of ePT grown on top of PEDOT:PSS. The cells with ePT buffer layer grown with constant potential mode compared to solar cells without additional ePT buffer layer have an 18.7% increase in power conversion efficiency. However, the cells with ePT grown with cyclic potential mode result in an additional enhancement in short circuit current with a further increase of 11.7% in power conversion efficiency. This improvement is attributed to better quality of the buffer layer obtained by cyclic potential electropolymerization technique with respect to film quality and area coverage.
