Designing aligned inorganic nanotubes at the electrode interface: towards highly efficient photovoltaic wires

Adv Mater. 2012 Sep 4;24(34):4623-8. doi: 10.1002/adma.201201893. Epub 2012 Jun 21.


Aligned carbon and titanium dioxide nanotubes are designed at the electrode interface to improve the charge separation and transport. The resulting organic photovoltaic wire exhibits high power conversion efficiency. This flexible photovoltaic wire can be easily integrated into a textile by a conventional weaving technique.
