The main challenge for OPV production is to achieve a high process yield when the technology come from lab scale 0,1 cm² to reach > 1000 cm²
The efficiency of OPV during this last years has a huge increase with totally different chemical nature (non fullerene) and highly potential donors polymers. The academic publications reach today 17% of PCE.
Armor could observe from lab cell to wide format module a loss close to 50% of the efficiency. I will present the different losses from different OPV structures with potential link due to environment (oxygen, light, humidity) and process conditions.
