Polymer/fullerene bulk heterojunction solar cells with poly[2-methoxy-5- (20-ethylhexoxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene] (MEH-PPV), zinc-phthalocyanine (ZnPc) and 6,6-phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM), were produced and characterized. A device based on MEH-PPV and PCBM provided better efficiency, fill factor and short-circuit current compared to those of a device on MEH-PPV(ZnPc) and PCBM. The solar cells with a MEH-PPV and PCBM structure showed a higher photoresponse in the range of 300 to 60 nm. The energy levels of the molecules were calculated and are discussed.
