The time resolved microwave conductivity (TRMC) method was used in order to study the generation and decay kinetics of charge carriers in the Bulk Heterojunction (BHJ) solar cells. The charge carriers were generated with 532nm laser pulses of 10ns FWHM (Full Width at Half Maximum) induced in the cells. The BHJ solar cells used for the measurements had a photoactive layer consisting of a mixture of Poly (3-Hexylthiophene) P3HT and Phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) which was spin coated onto Indium tin oxide (ITO)/glass substrates. In the field of Organic photovoltaic blends, TRMC method is introduced as a new method of direct investigation of the charge carrier lifetime as well as the charge carrier mobility and we were successful in studying the charge carrier lifetime of the reference BHJ solar cells.
We also studied the influence of aligned ferroelectric fields on the charge separation in BHJ solar cells. As ferroelectric material, we used the copolymer Poly (vinylidene fluoride - trifluoroethylene) P(VDF-TrFE).
