of successful device design: materials, device physics, and manufacturing technologies, has been retained. Important aspects such as printing technologies, substrates, and electrode systems are covered. The result is a balanced, comprehensive text on the fundamentals as well as the latest results in the area that will set R&D trends for years 3/5(1). Organic Photovoltaics: Mechanisms, Materials, and Devices fills this gap. The book provides an international perspective on the latest research in this rapidly expanding field with contributions from top experts around the by: Organic Photovoltaics also analyzes in detail the charge-transfer processes in the bulk-heterojunction devices corresponding to the relevant mechanism of carrier generation. Emphasized throughout is the concept of interpenetrating polymer-fullerene networks, due to . Christoph J. Brabec is director of the polymer photovoltaics programme at Konarka Technologies. After completing his Ph.D. in , he joined the group of Prof Alan Heeger at the University of Santa Barbara, USA, for a sabbatical in , and continued to work on the opto-electronic properties of organic semiconductors as assistant professor at the University of Linz with Prof. Serdar Sariciftci.
Although many books currently exist on general concepts of PV and inorganic PV materials and devices, few are available that offer a comprehensive overview of recently fast developing organic and polymeric PV materials and devices. Organic Photovoltaics: Mechanisms, Materials, and Devices fills this gap. Organic Photovoltaics are on the Rise Organic electronics have gained rapid acceptance in the electronic display industry due to their low cost and ultra-thin, flexible form factor. Organic technology can also be applied to solar photovoltaics to completely redefine the way solar cells are fabricated and how and where solar power is used. Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) devices convert solar energy to electrical energy. A typical OPV device consists of one or several photoactive materials sandwiched between two electrodes.

The book is effectively sectionedinto two mainblocks: Chapters cover the basic elements of photovoltaics-theindividual electricity .
Abstract. Solar cell is an electrical device, which converts the light energy into electrical energy through the photovoltaic (PV) effect. Solar cells are classified into two categories, which are wafer-based cell and thin film–based cell. The drawbacks of wafer-based solar cell are low absorption coefficient, expensive, and efficiency of the cell will decrease in high temperature and low light conditions. This book covers fundamentals of organometal perovskite materials and their photovoltaics, including materials preparation and device fabrications. Special emphasis is given to halide perovskites. The opto-electronic properties of perovskite materials and recent progress in perovskite solar cells are described. Organic Photovoltaics Background and Challenges. Organic photovoltaics (OPVs) represent a transformative technology with great potential for extremely high-throughput manufacturing at very low cost, and are made from non-toxic, earth-abundant materials with low energy inputs. They have the potential to serve as lightweight, flexible, conformal. Inhibiting Photooxidative Degradation in Organic Solar Cells using Stabilizing Additives, V. Turkovic and M.
