A high efficiency solution processed polymer inverted triple-junction solar cell exhibiting a power conversion efficiency of 11.83%†
High efficiency, solution-deposited polymer inverted double- and triple-junction solar cells are demonstrated. The devices are composed of three distinctive photosensitive materials in three distinct subcells, with minimal absorption spectral overlap, and with a bandgap ranging from 1.3 eV to 1.82 eV. A transparent hybrid inorganic organic mixture was introduced as an interconnecting layer to optically and physically connect the subcells. Accordingly, a power conversion efficiency of 10.39% was attained for the double-junction cell and a record high of 11.83% was obtained for the triple-junction cell.
