Abstract

An easy and efficient approach to achieve a large-area cathode interlayer with controlled film composition, uniformity, and thickness under a nanometer scale is reported by using an electrostatic layer-by-layer (eLbL) self-assembly process. The eLbL films provide a new means for preparing efficient interlayers for polymer solar cells (PSCs) and also represent a potential candidate for use in high-performance large-area PSC modules in the future.
