Title: Investigation of ultra-thin titania films as hole-blocking contacts for organic photovoltaics

Abstract

Ultra-thin (0.5–10 nm) plasma-enhanced atomic layer deposited titanium oxide (TiO x) films deposited on indium-tin-oxide contacts, are investigated as hole-blocking interlayers using conventional electrochemistry, Si-diodes, and heterojunction (P3HT:PCBM) organic photovoltaics (OPVs).
