Paper Title:
Improved Photovoltaic Efficiency of Polymer Photovoltaic Cells by Microwave Irradiation
  Abstract

In this study, microwave annealing treatment was introduced into poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT):[6,6]-phenyl-C61butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) and poly(9,9‘-dioctylfluorene-cobithiophene (PFT2):PCBM systems instead of thermal annealing treatment. In both systems, microwave annealing showed photovoltaic performane comparable to that of conventional thermal annealing. Through the UV-vis absorption, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies, we were able to confirm that the microwave annealing increases the crystallization of the P3HT polymer chains.
