Abstract

 

The manufacture of emerging products such as photovoltaic devices requires combinations of various novel materials to be leveraged into successful, scalable approach. In order to develop new electronic devices, it is necessary to find innovative solutions to the eco-sustainability problem of materials as substrates for circuits. We report on the demonstration of polymer solar cells fabricated on optically transparent and conductive graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs)–cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) film. The solar cells fabricated on the GNPs/CNC films display good rectification in the dark. Such GNPs–CNC functional films are expected to be attractive for eco-friendly electronics.
