Abstract

Inverted type bulk heterojunction organic solar cell based on ZnO nanorod arrays been used to overcome the degradation problem of conjugated polymer and low work fun electrode. ZnO nanorods and Eosin-Y are widely used to increase the charge mobility and absorbance, respectively. The effects of Eosin-Y coating temperature (30 - 50 °C) on performance of organic solar cells based on a blend of poly[2-methoxy-5-(2-ethylhexyloxy) phenylenevinylene] (MEHPPV) as donor and (6,6)-phenyl-C 61 butyric acid methyl ester (PC 61 as acceptor with a structure of fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO)/Eosin-Y coated ZnO nan arrays/MEHPPV:PCBM/Ag were investigated. By using FTO as a substrate, sol-gel and coating method was used to deposit ZnO seed layer on FTO surface. The ZnO nanorods were grown on the ZnO seed layer by chemical bath deposition method and coated with dy immersing the substrates into Eosin-Y solution at different temperatures. The result shows absorption of Eosin-Y coated ZnO nanorods increased with dye coating temperature. The opti power conversion efficiency of η = 1.24 × 10 -2 % was achieved at dye coating temperature 5 under 100 mW/cm 2 simulated AM 1.5 G sunlight.
