Abstract

Bulk-heterojunction organic thin-film solar cells incorporating gold and silver nanoparticles were fabricated and evaluated. These nanoparticles were embedded in the hole-transport layer of the solar cells. Plasmonic absorption peaks of isolated gold and silver nanoparticles were confirmed from extinction spectra even in the hole-transport material. The incorporation of gold and silver nanoparticles increased the photoelectric conversion efficiency of organic thin-film solar cells, whose enhancement ratio was further increased by mixing gold and silver nanoparticles.
