July 2019: Researchers at the Leibniz University, Germany recently examined the impact of sorbitol admixture to hole-conduction polymer ‘PEDOT:PSS’ on crystalline/polymer silicon heterojunction solar cells. According to the research, the admixture of infrared-transparent sorbitol augmented the short-circuit density of the cell because of a reduction in infrared parasitic absorption, along with an improved passivation quality of PEDOT:PSS.
