Abstract: Optical admittance analysis reveals that light absorption in inverted organic solar cells (OSCs), based on the same polymer blend layer of regio-regular poly(3-hexylthiophene):[6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM), is always greater than their regular geometry OSCs fabricated using an ITO/poly(3,4-ethylene dioxythiophene):(polystyrene sulfuric acid) anode. Transient photocurrent measurements elucidate that interfacial exciton dissociation at the cathode interfaces of Al-modified ITO/PCBM (inverted cell) and Al/PCBM (regular cell) is not equivalent. It is shown that the reverse configuration allows improving the absorbance of the cell, favoring charge collection at cathode/PCBM interface and also possessing a dawdling degradation behavior as compared to a control regular OSC in the accelerated aging test. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
