Nanodiamonds Embedded in P3HT:PCBM for Enhancing Efficiency and Reliability of Hybrid Photovoltaics

e-Journal of Surface Science and Nanotechnology 15 (2012) K27-K30

We explore the effect of nanodiamonds and the improvement in the performance and thermal stability of organic photovoltaics (OPVs) device. The surface root mean square roughness of the hybrid film increased as the doping nanodiamond was increased. The addition of the nanodiamond increased the rate of exciton generation and improved optical absorption, thereby enhancing the short-circuit current density. In this study, the hybrid organic solar cell with the nanodiamond not only improved the efficiency, but was also effective for the reliability of device.
