3.1 Introduction

Organic photovoltaic cells have great potential to enable mass production with extremely low cost. The power conversion efficiency of organic photovoltaic cells has improved rapidly in the past few years, exceeding 5% in 2005 [1,2] and 9.8% in 2012 [3]. But it is still low compared to other traditional solar cells. The relatively low efficiency is rooted in the low dielectric ...
