Originální abstrakt

A detailed study of organic solar cells (OSC) doped with various ferromagnetic and superparamagnetic (Fe3O4, ZnFe2O4 NiFe2O4) nanoparticles (MNPs) is presented. Additionally to previously used magnetite nanoparticles, various magnetic moment spinel ferrites were applied. By impedance spectroscopy (IS) analysis it is shown how the doping with various MNPs influences solar cells' performance by the charge carrier effective lifetime extension. In this regard, we introduced a convenient illustrative method to define time constants from the impedance measurements. It is also shown that, photovoltaic performance of the solar cells directly depends on the magnetic moment and alignment of the. super paramagnetic single-domain MNPs. Alignment of the MNPs within the OSCs' active layer results in MNPs dipole-dipole interaction, thus further-improves photovoltaic performance due to efficient charge collection at the short-circuit condition. OSC doping with ferromagnetic MNPs showed negative influence on the device petformance, however in dark conditions, devices doped with CoFe2O4 showed higher forward current presumably due to leakage current through the large MNP aggregation or electron-polaron hopping.
