This project is on fabrication of low cost and high efficiency solar cells. Conventional bulk-heterojunction solar cells with organic and inorganic hybrid structures have potential as high efficiency solar cells. However, some weak points such as long preparation processes and less charge collection abilities have been reported. Our study is aiming at solving these points. The bulk-heterojunction interface with the hybrid structure is prepared all at once from soluble inorganic precursors. We propose new materials, processes, and device structures to realize the structure. Researchers in the fields of molecular design, syntheses, time resolved spectroscopy, cell structure, and processes join this project to design high performance photoconversion interfaces.
