Abstract

Well-aligned, high-resolution (10 nm), three-dimensional (3D) hybrid nanostructures consisting of patterned cylinders and Au islands were fabricated on ITO substrates using an ion bombardment process and a tilted deposition process. The fabricated 3D hybrid nanostructure-embedded ITO maintained its excellent electrical and optical properties after applying a surface-structuring process. The solution processable organic photovoltaic device (SP-OPV) employing a 3D hybrid nanostructure-embedded ITO as the anode displayed a 10% enhancement in the photovoltaic performance compared to the photovoltaic device prepared using a flat ITO electrode, due to the improved charge collection (extraction and transport) efficiency as well as light absorbance by the photo-active layer.
