Abstract

A method is proposed to prepare semi-transparent plastic solar cells by using a lamination process. The study aimed to prepare solar cells by using a low-cost roll-to-roll fabrication method. An electronic glue-based lamination process was used with interface modification for semitransparent polymer solar cell preparation. The study observed that the prepared solar-cell is metal-free, semitransparent, flexible, self-encapsulated, and has a power efficiency of 3% under global 1 sun solar illumination conditions. Two transparent substrates coated with a transparent conductor of indium tin oxide (ITO), or fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO), or a conductive polymers was used for the study to prepare solar-cell. It was observed that this method is low-cost, self-encapsulation, and provide high transparency.
