While the efficiency of PBDTTPD-based single-junction PSCs is limited by incomplete optical absorption, we show that homo-tandem PSCs with MoO3 /ultrathin Al/ZnO intermediate recombination layers can achieve higher PCE values. The PV performance of single-junction PBDTTPD:PC 71 BM PSCs were investigated with the standard device structure ITO/PEDOT:PSS/PBDTTPD:PC71 BM/Ca/Al. Next, the potential for further PCE increments were examined via a triple-junction PSC device approach, using the same ZnO/Al/MoO3 interconnection layer between the three subcells. PBDTTPD homo-tandem PSCs yield high operating voltages of 1.54 V at their maximum power point, providing sufficient potential for the dissociation of water and the evolution of hydrogen and oxygen in a standard electrochemical cell.||ISSN:||1521-4095||DOI:||10.1002/adma.201504633||Rights:||© Wiley||Type:||Article||Affiliation :||Cyprus University of Technology
