Highly flexible and transparent conducting silver nanowire/ZnO composite film for organic solar cells


silver nanowire, flexible, transparent conducting electrode, inverted organic solar cell


High efficiency and flexible inverted organic solar cells have been fabricated using solution-processed silver nanowire/zinc oxide composite transparent electrodes. The transparent electrodes showed a low sheet resistance of ~13 Ω·sq–1 and high transmittance of ~93% as well as superior mechanical flexibility. Power conversion efficiencies of ~7.57% and ~7.21% were achieved for devices fabricated on glass and plastic substrate, respectively. Moreover, the flexible devices did not show any degradation in their performance even after being folded with a radius of ~480 μm.
