Abstract

© 2015 IEEE. In this work, we analyze the performance parameters of the inverted organic solar cells (OSC) partially fabricated under an air environment, comparing them with those of similar solar cells manufactured totally under a nitrogen environment. Both solar cells use PTB7 and PC70BM as the active blend layer. The electrical parameters were extracted from the current density-voltage characteristic (J-V) under light and dark conditions. At the beginning, the OSCs partially fabricated under an air environment showed a similar performance as those manufactured under an N2environment. After 120 h, the power conversion efficiency of the OSCs partially fabricated under an air environment decreased 32% with respect to its initial value. The degradation process under the ISOS-D1 protocols was also analyzed.
