Abstract

In this work, the effect of multiple deposition of nickel oxide (NiO) hole transport layer (HTL) on the performance of inverted type organic solar cell with a configuration of fluorine tin oxide (FTO)/zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods/ poly(3-hexylthiopene):[6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (P3HT:PCBM)/NiO/silver (Ag) was investigated. The NiO nanoparticles solution was spin-coated on top of the photoactive layer (P3HT:PCBM) prior to deposition of Ag electrode. Different numbers of NiO layers (1, 2, and 4) were deposited on the photoactive layer to obtain the optimum surface morphology of HTL. The device with 2 layers of NiO exhibited the optimum power conversion efficiency of 1.10%. It is believed that the optimum NiO deposition layer gives the complete coverage at photoactive layer and forms ohmic contact between the photoactive layer and Ag electrode.
