Paper Abstract

We report here on properties of Metal-Semiconductor-Metal cells based on poly(3-octylthiophene), P3OT. The diodes were fabricated by spin-coating of poly (3-octylthiophene) on an indium-tin oxide coated glass substrate and an aluminum top contact was evaporated onto the film. The optical and electrical characteristics of the diodes were studied. A power efficiency of 10-4 was obtained at AM 1.5 conditions, while the power efficiency reached its maximum of 6% under illumination at 256 nm at an intensity of 2 (mu) W/cm2.
