Thi Thao Tran and Quang Trung Tran and Van Truong Vo and Nang Dinh Nguyen (2016) Optical Property and Photoelectrical Performance of a Low-Bandgap Conducting Polymer Incorporated With Quantum Dots Used for Organic Solar Cells. In: SW4PHD: the 2016 Scientific Workshop for PhD Students, 26 March 2016, Hanoi.
By using spin-coating technique, a low bandgap conjugated polymer, poly[2,6-(4,4-bis-(2-ethylhexyl)-4H-cyclopen-ta[2,1-b;3,4-b′]dithiophene)-alt-4,7-(2,1,3-benzothiadiazole)] (PCPDTBT) and its composite thin films have been prepared. The optical absorption and photoconductive properties with over a wide spectral range, from 350 to 950 nm, were characterized. The obtained results showed that PCPDTBT:10 wt% CdSe composite is the most suitable for efficient light-harvesting in polymer-based photovoltaic cells. The photoelectrical conversion efficiency (PCE) of the device with a multilayer structure of ITO/PEDOT/ PCPDTBT:CdSe /LiF/Al reached a value as large as 1.34% with an open-circuit voltage (Voc) = 0.57 V, a short-circuit current density (Jsc) = 4.29 mA/cm2, and a fill factor (FF) = 0.27. This suggests a useful application in further fabrication of quantum dots/polymers based solar cells.
