Abstract

Al/PANI-MWNT/Au-Plastic Schottky diode solar cells were fabricated by the electrochemical polymerization technique to make polyaniline films on the top of gold nanoparticles film. The aluminum contact was deposited by thermal evaporation. The electro-optical characteristics of these devices produced at the different polymerization time were compared. Here, we achieved the highest ever reported open-circuit voltage of 0.8 V with the electrochemical polymerization technique. The polymerization of polyaniline films was thought to be a major factor in the enhanced performance. The effects of varying the polyaniline thickness on the device performance were investigated
