Photovoltaic Properties of Fullerene (C 60) Thin films Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract The crystalline structure, Electron Paramagnetic Resonance and Surface Photovoltage (SPV) spectra of C 60 thin films and the photovoltaic properties of C 60/Ag and C 60/Si interfaces are reported. The SPV spectra of C 60 films, C 60/Ag and C 60/Si interfaces are presented and analyzed on the basis of a model of C 60 film electron structure including mobility gap, band tails extending into the gap and two deep level states in the gap. IV characteristics of the C 60/Ag and the C 60/P-Si interfaces were measured. Both …
