Abstract

We report the plasmon-assisted photocurrent enhancement in Ag nanoparticles (NPs)-embedded PEDOT:PSS/P3HT:PCBM organic solar cells, and theoretically investigate the causes of the improved optical absorption based on a cylindrical Ag-NPs model which is simulated with a finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. The proposed cylindrical Ag-NPs model is able to explain the optical absorption enhancement by the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) modes, and to provide a further understanding of Ag-NPs shape parameters which play an important role to determine the broadband absorption phenomena in plasmonic organic solar cells.
