New Guest Post Series: "A PhD Student Condenses..."

Posted on Mon, Sep 24, 2018

We are excited to announce the start of a new 6-part series titled "A PhD Student Condenses...", where recent academic articles will be condensed and reviewed by Ossila's newest academic collaborator - Emma Spooner, a first-year PhD student in Fullerene-Free Photovoltaic Devices the University of Sheffield.


Condensed Summary

Title: Influence of Molar Mass Ratio, Annealing Temperature and Cathode Buffer Layer on Power Conversion Efficiency of P3HT:PC71BM-based Organic Bulk Heterojunction Solar Cell

Citation: A. Singh et. al, Organ. Electron., 2017, 51, 428-434.

Learning point: The processing conditions used for one bulk-heterojunction OPV stack may not be the most optimal for a different stack.


The first paper she will review in this series is an article by Singh, Dey & Iyer featured in the December 2017 issue of Organic Electronics. It is based on optimising organic  (OPV) processing conditions - a topic important in maximising power conversion efficiency (PCE) values, and therefore of particular interest to researchers in the field of OPVs.
