Abstract

In this work, we report on investigation of p-type semiconducting polymer, {poly(3,4 polyethylenedioxythiophene)-poly(styrenesulfonate)} (PEDOT:PSS) as the p-layer in NIP and PIN hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) solar cells. The rectification ratio of solution-casted diode is ∼ 10, it increases to 3×10 4 when PEDOT:PSS is deposited by Spin Coating technique. We observed additional photovoltaic effect when light is illuminated through polymer side. So far, best solar cells characteristics observed for PEDOT:PSS/a-Si:H hybrid solar cells are V oc ≈ 720 mV and J sc ≈ 1-2 mA/cm 2.
