ITO-free transparent electrodes can be based on inkjet-printed Silver (Ag) nanoparticles grids embedded into PEDOT:PSS buffer layers. We present an in-depth investigation of the morphological evolution of the inkjet printed Ag nanopartricle sintering process combined with an ultimate control of the printed grid design requirements for efficient ITO-free organic photovoltaics (OPVs). We report on glass/ITO-free P3HT:PC60BM and Si-PCPDTBT:PC70BM based OPVs with power conversion efficiency of 2.8% and 4.9% respectively. These devices exhibited minimal losses when compared to reference ITO-based OPVs.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9620||ISSN:||09270248||Rights:||© 2013 Elsevier B.V.||Type:||Article|
