Abstract

The composite thin film of poly(3, 4-ethylenedioxythiophene): poly(styrenesulfonate)/single-wall carbon nanotubes (PEDOT:PSS/SWCNTs) for a hole transport layer in polymer solar cells have been explored. PEDOT:PSS/SWCNT composite film exhibited higher electrical conductivity than the control PEDOT:PSS film, suggesting the increase in carrier transport passes through SWCNTs in the hole transport layer. We also demonstrated the improvement of a fill factor and short circuit current density in the polymer solar cells with the hole transport layer of PEDOT:PSS/SWCNT as compared with PEDOT:PSS.
