Paper Abstract

As the intrinsic electrostatic limit, space charge limit (SCL) for photocurrent is a universal phenomenon which is fundamental important for organic semiconductors. We will demonstrate SCL breaking by a new plasmonic-electrical concept. As a proof-ofconcept, organic solar cells (OSCs) comprising metallic planar and grating electrodes are studied. Interestingly, although strong plasmonic resonances induce abnormally dense photocarriers around a grating anode, the grating incorporated inverted OSC is exempt from space charge accumulation (limit) and degradation of electrical properties. The plasmonic-electrical concept will open up a new way to manipulate both optical and electrical properties of semiconductor devices simultaneously.
