Abstract

A facile approach enhancing electron extraction in zinc oxide (ZnO) electron transfer interlayer and improving performance of bulk-heterojunction (BHJ) polymer solar cells (PSCs) by adding cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) into sol-gel ZnO precursor solution was demonstrated in this work. The power conversion efficiency (PCE) has a 24.1% increment after modification. Our results show that CTAB can dramatically influence optical, electrical and morphological properties of ZnO electron transfer layer, and work as effective additive to enhance the performance of bulk-heterojunction polymer solar cells.
