Abstract

In this paper, hybrid heterojunction solar cells are demonstrated based on a highly conductive polymer PEDOT:PSS directly spun-cast on an n-type crystalline silicon with microscale surface textures. The fabrication conditions suggest that the organic coverage on the micro-textured surface is excellent and key to achieve high efficiency. The simple solution-based fabrication processes achieved a cell power conversion efficiency of 10.2%. Device modeling had been performed to investigate the interface defect density dependence of cell performances. A power conversion efficiency of above 20% is projected for the hybrid heterojunction cells, showing promises for low-cost photovoltaics.
