An Overview of the Inverted Polymer Solar Cell Architecture's Development
The rising cost of producing energy from fossil fuels has prompted a quest for a more cost-effective alternative energy source. Solar energy is one alternative energy source that has piqued my attention. Organic semiconductor polymer solar cells are a potential alternative to inorganic materials because they are cheaper, lighter, more flexible, and can be manufactured into huge regions using roll-to-roll manufacturing. The traditional design for manufacturing solar cells, on the other hand, requires a high vacuum to deposit the top metal electrode, which is not appropriate for roll-to-roll production. Recently, an inverted device design was explored as a possible architecture for creating optimal roll-to-roll polymer-based solar cell manufacturing. The latest developments and methods in the creation of this kind of inverted device design will be discussed in this study. We'll go through some of the work we've done to combine the inverted device architecture platform's materials, device, interface, and manufacturing to create more idealized polymer-based solar cells.
