We developed indium-tin-oxide/perylene diimide (or bathocuproine (BCP))/poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene (MEH-PPV) and [6,6]-phenyl C-60 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) blend/copper phthalocyanine (CuPc)/Au interpenetrated network polymer solar cells in order to improve air stability. The stability properties of the cells were characterized by current-voltage measurements under the influence of light and air. We achieved long lifetime solar cells which work at least 2 weeks under ambient air conditions without encapsulation. Solar energy conversion efficiency of the cells decrease 30% of the first day value at the end of 2 weeks. Photocurrent absorption properties of the devices were also investigated.
