Research Shows that New Electrode Coating Enhances Photovoltaic Cell Performance
A study done by scientists from King Abdullah University of Science & Technology has revealed that electrode coating can help to enhance the performance of organic photovoltaic cells. According to the researchers, the electrode coating that is just one molecule thick can outdo the leading and most common organic photovoltaic cells.
The study, which was led by Thomas Anthopoulos, has revealed that the single-molecule layer boosts the electrical charge into the electrode and this could lead to advanced devices that rely on organic molecules such as light-emitting diodes and photodetectors.
Generally, organic …
