We report on a sol-gel-based technique to fabricate MoO(3) thin films as a hole-injection layer for solution-processed or thermally evaporated organic solar cells. The solution-processed MoO(3) (sMoO(3)) films are demonstrated to have equal performance to hole-injection layers composed of either...

An MoO(3) film spin-coated from a solution prepared by an extremely facile and cost-effective synthetic method is introduced as an anode buffer layer of bulk-heterojunction polymer photovoltaic devices. The device efficiency using the MoO(3) anode buffer layer is comparable to...

The ability to engineer interfacial energy offsets in photovoltaic devices is one of the keys to their optimization. Here, we demonstrate that improvements in power conversion efficiency may be attained for ZnO/PbS heterojunction quantum dot photovoltaics through the incorporation of...

A heterojunction photodiode with NIR photoresponse using solution processable pyrite FeS(2) nanocrystal ink is demonstrated which has the advantages of earth-abundance and non-toxicity. The device consists of a FeS(2) nanocrystal (NC) thin film sandwiched with semiconducting metal oxides with a...
