ABSTRACT
We demonstrate double-heterostructure copper phthalocyanine/C60 organic photovoltaic cells with series resistances as low as 0.1 Ω cm2. A high fill factor of ∼0.6 is achieved, which is only slightly reduced at very intense illumination. As a result, the power conversion efficiency increases with the incident optical power density, reaching a maximum of (4.2±0.2)% under 4–12 suns simulated AM1.5G illumination. The cell performance is accurately described employing an analysis based on conventional semiconductor p–n junction diodes. The dependence of the series resistance on the device area suggests the dominance of the bulk resistance of the indium-tin-oxide anode as a limiting factor in practical cell efficiencies. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
