Organic photovoltaics (OPV) can lead to a low cost and short energy payback time alternative to existing photovoltaic technologies. However, to fulfill this promise, power conversion efficiencies must be improved and simultaneously the architecture of the devices and their processing steps need to be further simplified. In this talk we will present a simple solution-based technique that leads to the electrical doping of semiconducting polymer films over a limited depth. We will also show how that new processing technique can be employed to fabricate efficient single layer organic photovoltaic devices in which the functions of hole-and electron-collection are integrated in specific regions of the active layer near the electrodes.
