Polythiophene films can be electrodeposited on modified ITO substrates, textured to increase their active surface area, doped to enhance charge transport, and then interfaced with C60 thin films to create "planar heterojunction" photovoltaic devices with power conversion efficiencies up to 1%. Preliminary results indicate that these electrodeposited films (e-P3HT) modified with appropriate ligands can serve as hosts for semi-conducting nanoparticles (CdSe NPs). These NPs may ultimately extend the device spectral sensitivity into the red and near-IR spectral regions.
