Recent Modeling of MDMO-PPV: PCBM Solar Cells versus Mixture Ratio, Electric Field and Incidence Angle with Hopping Model

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

It is a matter of controversy why excitons can efficiently dissociate into free carriers at an intrinsic polymer/fullerene interface. While extensive characterization is performed in the course of many reported experimental studies, correlation of performance and physical parameters among studies done in different laboratories is low, pointing out the need to address some aspects of BHJSC active materials that have received relatively some attention. In this paper, we discuss the modeling of MDMO-PPV/PCBM(Poly(2-methoxy-5-(3,7-dimethyloctyloxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene)/ soluble C60 derivative, methanofullerene, [6,6]-phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester organic devices. In our approach, we apply two recent methods so called transfer matrix method and hopping model to calculate the exciton dissociation probability, and photocurrent density versus mixture ratio, electric field and angle of incidence. The results show that EDP (exciton dissociation probability) in solar cells without PEDOT-PSS (Poly (ethylendioxythiophene)-Poly(styrene sulfonic acid)) HTL hole transporting layer is better than the cells with additional layer in enhancing the performance of MDMO-PPV/PCBM solar cells. When the weight ratio of MDMO-PPV is less than 3:5 and 2:5 respectively, the best exciton dissociation probability, and photocurrent density of solar cell is obtained.
