Presentation Summary

  • New materials for use in bulk heterojunction solar cells including small molecules and well-defined block co-polymers
  • Analysis of energy levels and interfaces by photoelectron spectroscopy in air and the importance of this information for device design
  • Progress on developing printing methods for solar cells based on these new materials. This will include a discussion of the application of the technology developed for printing Australia's polymer banknotes to plastic electronics
  • An overview of research and commercial partnerships as well as funding for Australian Organic Solar Cell research and development

Company Profile (CSIRO)
