Enhanced efficiency of solution-processed small-molecule solar cells upon incorporation of gold nanospheres and nanorods into organic layers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The significantly enhanced performance upon incorporation of Au nanoparticles in solution-processed small-molecule solar cells is demonstrated. Simultaneously incorporating Au nanospheres into the hole transport layer and Au–silica nanorods into the active layer results in superior broadband absorption improvement in the device with a power conversion efficiency of 8.72% with 31% enhancement.
