SOLAR CELLS

When considering how best to present a volume on organic solar cells, we quickly realized the inherent complexity and depth of the topic. On one hand, it is a technology on the verge of commercialization, while on the other hand, there still remain a large range of fundamental and technological questions to be answered. These include a better understanding of the physical processes occurring within and at the interfaces of active and interlayers, device architectures optimized simultaneously for performance and lifetime, and remaining challenges related to large-scale cost-efficient manufacturing. In order to enable industrial implementation of organic photovoltaics (OPV), parallel progress in these and many other pertinent areas is required...
