Abstract
The proposed Phase I project is focused on the development of the novel low cost efficient nanoparticles/organic hybrid photovoltaic cells using the direct write method. New polymers and combinations of dye and polymer materials will be explored. The device will convert light in a wide spectral range to electricity. Nanoparticles/organic hybrid photovoltaic cells are thin, lightweight, flat and relatively inexpensive to produce in large quantities. The use of direct write technology is an elegant alternative to traditional fabrication methods of semiconductor electronics such as photolithography, vacuum deposition techniques, masking, high processing temperatures, etc. This project will develop an efficient, inexpensive and reliable method of manufacturing novel nanoparticles/organic hybrid photovoltaic cells capable of stable and extended service under a wide range of environmental conditions.
