Abstract

A bulk-heterojunction photovoltaic cell design made from silicon nanowires (SiNW) and poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) could provide the photon absorption and charge transport needed for a high efficiency hybrid PV cell. Since the mechanisms associated with the inorganic/organic semiconductor heterojunction are not yet well understood, the simple design of the proposed PV cell and tunable properties of both SiNW and P3HT affords experimental optimization opportunities.
