Fabrication of Organic Thin-Film Solar Cell using Innovative Paintable Material

 The present research project focuses on the control of nano-structure in the p/n junction of organic thin film solar cells fabricated with low-molecular weight organic semiconductive materials of paintable form, which are prepared by the methods such as photoconversion-type precursor method or those in hypermolecule nanostructure configuration. This approach is expected to establish the technology to manufacture the organic solar cell devices with increased charge separation interface and secured carrier-takeout channel, both of which characteristics have long been deemed impossible to achieve concomitantly, toward development of solar cells of next generation.
