Abstract


In this study, J-V curves of a-Si:H/PCPDTBT:PC70BM hybrid tandem solar cells were simulated using a modified drift-diffusion model, and the influence of the thickness of the organic blend layer was investigated. The results of the simulations were compared with experimental data from literature.It is shown that as the thickness of the blend layer increases, the fill factor and the voltage corresponding to maximum power point decrease whereas the maximum power point and the short circuit current density of solar cell increase up to thicknesses of 60 nm and 138 nm respectively. Finally, the modified organic solar cell was used as second sub-cell and the power conversion efficiency increased from 1.90% to 2.1% in simulation.
