Paper Abstract

Fullerene (C60) samples purified to seven-nine level by single-crystal formed sublimation were incorporated into i-layer of p-i-n organic solar cells. Fill factor hardly decreased even for the very thick C60: metal-free phthalocyanine (H2Pc) codeposited i-interlayer reaching 1.2 µm. For 1 µm thick i-layer, short-circuit photocurrent density of 18.3 mAcm-2 and photo-electric conversion efficiency of 5.3% was observed. Very large photocurrent density is mainly due to nearly 100% utilization of solar light in the visible region by 1 µm-thick i-layer.
