Title: Efficient, Air-Stable Bulk Heterojunction Polymer Solar Cells Using MoOx as the Anode Interfacial Layer

Abstract

The use of molybdenum oxide as the anode interfacial layer in conventional bulk heterojunction polymer solar cells leads to an improved power conversion efficiency and also dramatically increases the device stability. This indicates that the engineering of improved anode interface materials is an important method by which to fabricate efficient and stable polymer solar cells.
