Effect of CdSe nanoparticles incorporation on the performance of P3OT organic photovoltaic cells

Abstract : Photoluminescence and photovoltaic properties of P3OT:%CdSe nanocomposite films are investigated as a function of the mass concentration (wt%) of the CdSe nanoparticles (NPs) incorporated in the films. The incorporation of CdSe NPs produces a quenching of the photoluminescence and improves the performance of the nanocomposite solar cells. These effects are explained in terms of exciton dissociation and charge separation occurring at P3OT/CdSe interfaces within the Forster formalism, involving non-radiative energy transfer from the donor (P3OT) to the acceptor (CdSe NPs). An exciton quenching rate constant of 1.4 x 10(-10) cm(3) s(-1) is determined using the Stern-Volmer equation. In addition, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images reveal that surface morphology is changed by CdSe NPs incorporation, in agreement with FTIR spectra. The current density-voltage (I-V) characteristics of ITO/P3OT:%CdSe/Al photovoltaic cells performed for different CdSe concentrations are also reported and indicate a significant improvement of the photovoltaic parameters cells, particularly, the conversion efficiency becomes 20 times greater than that of the cell based on pure polymer.
