Abstract

Roll-processed, indium tin oxide (ITO)-free, flexible, organic tandem solar cells and modules have been realized and used in round-robin studies as well as in parallel inter-laboratory stability studies. The tandem cells/modules show no significant difference in comparison to their single-junction counterparts and the use of round-robin studies as a consensus tool for evaluation of organic solar cell parameters is judged just as viable for the tandem solar cells as for single-junction devices. The inter-laboratory stability studies were conducted according to testing protocols ISOS-D-2, ISOS-D-3, and ISOS-L-2, and in spite of a much more complicated architecture the organic tandem solar cells show no significant difference in stability in comparison to their single-junction counterparts.
