|Rao, K.D.M.; Hunger, C.; Gupta, R.; Kulkarni, G.U.; Thelakkat, M.: A cracked polymer templated metal network as a transparent conducting electrode for ITO-free organic solar cells, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 16, 15107-15110 (2014) -- DOI: 10.1039/C4CP02250E|
We report a highly transparent, low resistance Ag metal network templated by a cracked polymer thin film and its incorporation in an organic solar cell. The performance of this scalable metallic network is comparable to that of conventional ITO electrodes. This is a general approach to replace ITO in diverse thin film devices.
