In this case, n-type ITO layers spontaneously form a heterojunction by coming into contact with the thin oxide-coated p-type Si substrates.
To prove the efficacy of proposed OPV planar heterojunction and the ultrathin electron injection layer (Al/LiF), the conventional single emitter device structure is kept the same as used in [1] except that of the emitter that was CBP: Ir[(piq).sub.2]acac (8% by volume).

The light harvesting and charge collection efficiency within blended heterojunction devices are two challenges regarding the thickness of the active layer.
In addition, thermal annealing, for 15 min at 100[degrees]C, stabilizes the bulk heterojunction photoactive layer making it more robust to chemical degradation under prolonged operation and improves the power conversion efficiency to 2.8%.
This research was partly financed as a commission for Roth and Rau Switzerland, whose parent company, Meyer Burger, has already started the commercialization of machines built for assembling this type of heterojunction sensors.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian researchers from Islamic Azad University succeeded in improving crystalline growth and surface modification of ZnO layer in In2O3/SnO2/ZnO catalyst by using network accommodation between zinc and tin oxides and reducing the inductive tension in the heterojunction of the two oxides.
