ABSTRACT
Single mode microwave irradiation was successfully applied to improve the efficiency of polymer solar cell based on poly (3-hexylthiophene) and [6, 6]-phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester for the first time. Treatment at 93 °C for 4 min irradiation was possible to achieve the same effect as the thermal annealing at 150 °C for 6 min, proving this method is superior for morphology control under the mild condition. Energy conversion efficiency of 1.46% for untreated device was improved to 3.30% after microwave irradiation under the condition of AM 1.5, 100 mW/cm2.
