Abstract
Measurement of charge transport and recombination parameters in bulk heterojunction (BHJ) materials is of great interest to better understand the science underlying organic solar cells. We discuss the use of space charge limited current measurements under solar illumination to measure the mobility of lateral structures in which charge transport is parallel to the plane of the substrate. We compare these mobilities with mobilities calculated from field-effect measurements of the same structures. Changes in mobility as a function of device length and electric field are consistent with numerical simulations of these lateral structures. Lateral organic photovoltaic structures are potentially very useful in evaluating a number of basic material properties of BHJs including three-dimensional transport.
