We show that lifetimes exceeding 1250 h, even at high temperature/high humidity conditions, may be reached, proving that organic solar cells are significantly less sensitive against the environmental effects of water and oxygen than previously expected.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/838||DOI:||10.1063/1.2975185||Rights:||©2008 American Institute of Physics||Type:||Article|
