Title: Fabrication and characterization of P3HT:PCBM-based thin film organic solar cells with zinc phthalocyanine

[6,6]–phenyl C{sub 61}–butyric acid methyl ester and poly(3–hexylthiophene) bulk heterojunction solar cells added with zinc–tetra–tertiary–butyl–phthalocyanine (ZnPc) were fabricated and characterized. The photovoltaic properties of the solar cells with an inverted structure were improved by the ZnPc addition, which were investigated on the bases of current density–voltage characteristics, incident photon to current conversion efficiency.
