Abstract [en]

Organic solar cells have caught considerable attention in the past few years due to their potential for providing environmentally safe, flexible, lightweight, inexpensive, and roll-to-roll feasible production solar cells. However, the efficiency achieved in current organic solar cells is quite low, yet quick and successive improvements render it as a promising alternative. A hopeful approach to improve the efficiency is by exploiting the tandem concept which consists of stacking two or more organic solar cells in series.

One important constituent in tandem solar cells is the middle electrode layer which is transparent and functions as a cathode for the first cell and an anode for the second cell. Most studies done so far have employed noble metals such as gold or silver as the middle electrode layer; however, they suffered from several shortcomings especially with respect to reproducibility.

This thesis focuses on studying a new trend which employs an oxide material based on nano-particles as a transparent cathode (such as Zinc-oxide-nano-particles) along with a transparent anode so as to replace the middle electrode.

Thus, this work presents a study on solution processable zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures, their proper handling techniques, and their potential as a middle electrode material in Tandem solar cells in many different configurations involving both polymer and small molecule materials. Moreover, the ZnO-np potential as a candidate for acceptor material is also investigated.
