Single-walled carbon nanotube – polymer hybrids as hole transporting layers for organic solar cells

Abstract:

In this thesis, new types of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT)-Polymer/single molecule nanostructures were prepared and successfully used as hole transporting layers in both conventional and inverted organic solar cells thereby pushing the carbon nanotube based organic solar cell efficiency close to 10%. The first part of the thesis focuses on investigating the binding of nanotubes to Spiro-OMeTAD. A novel dual-shell nanostructure was prepared by first wrapping SWNTs with a monolayer of...
