ABSTRACT
The insertion of very thick naphthalene tetracarboxylic anhydride films under vacuum-deposited metal electrodes effectively protected pn-heterojunction organic solar cells from shorting-out electrically. Fill-factors of 0.56 and conversion efficiencies (corrected for absorbed light) of 3.07% were observed. The present technique would be a powerful tool for the fabrication of large area organic solar cells.

    Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) with TiO2 electrodes, which were modified to have different surface chemical states, were fabricated. The DSSCs had an ultra-flat TiO2 electrode, on which only a mono-layer dye was attached. The cell I-V measurement showed that Ti3+ ion had a dramatic effect on...
