Solution-processable graphene mesh transparent electrodes for organic solar cells
graphene, transparent electrode, photolithography, mesh electrode, organic photovoltaic cells
ABSTRACT Graphene mesh electrodes (GMEs) with good conductivity and transparency have been fabricated by the standard industrial photolithography and O2 plasma etching process using graphene solutions. Organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells using GMEs as the transparent electrodes with a blend of poly-(3-hexylthiophene)/ phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (P3HT/PC61BM) as the active layer have been fabricated and exhibit a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 2.04%, the highest PCE for solution-processed graphene transparent electrode-based solar cells reported to date.
