Electrospun nanofibers improve the performance of organic solar cells

The Pierini Research Group developed a method, based on the use of electrospun nanofibers, which allow to fabricate single-material organic solar cells (SMOCs) with the highest reported efficiency value (PCE = 5.58%).
Electrospun nanofibers-based organic solar cell article has been published in Macromolecules in collaboration with M. Lanzi (University of Bologna).
