Paper Abstract

In this article, the polymer photovoltaic devices based on the poly(3-hexylthiophene)/TiO2 nanorods hybrid material is present. An enhancement in the device performance can be achieved by removing or replacing the insulating surfactant on the TiO2 nanorods surface with a more conductive ligand, which can play the role to assist charge separation efficiency or also to prevent from back recombination, giving a large improvement in the short circuit current and fill factor. The relatively high power conversion efficiency of 2.2 % under simulated A.M. 1.5 illumination (100mW/cm2) can be achieved, providing a route for fabricating low-cost, environmentally friendly polymer photovoltaic devices by all-solution processes.
