Özet

We have investigated the effect of chiral (S)-5-octyloxy-2-[{4-(2-methylbuthoxy)-phenylimino}-methyl]phenol Liquid Crystalline Compound (LCC) addition into P3HT:C60 solar cells. Based on current-voltage characteristics, the efficiency of devices with liquid crystal is found to be higher than that of devices from pristine blends of P3HT:C60. Significant improvements have been achieved by using this liquid crystal additive.
