Objectives: To understand the limitations to the operating lifetime of solar cells made from organic thin film materials.
Methodology: To develop methods for accelerating the degradation of cells made in our labortory. This will involve developing a package for the solar cells that allows for unimpeded solar illumination of the cells while preventing moisture and atmospheric contaminants from attacking the solar cell material. Accelerated aging by operating the solar cells in an elevated temperature environment will be set up.
