Abstract

A photovoltaic cell module comprising at least two serially connected photovoltaic cells on a common substrate, wherein the cells each comprise a first electrode layer, a first charge selective layer, a light harvesting layer which comprises an organic conjugated polymer, and a second charge selective layer that selects for an opposite charge to the first charge selective layer, wherein the first electrode layers for each cell are formed such that the first electrode layer of one cell has no direct electrical connection to the first electrode layer of any other cell, and the second charge selective layer is formed such that the second charge selective layer of one cell has no direct electrical connection to the second charge selective layer of any other cell, and wherein the light-harvesting layer is formed such that it is common to at least one pair of adjacent cells of the module; wherein, for the at least one pair of adjacent cells to which the light harvesting layer is common, a metal layer is formed such that an electrical connection is established between the second charge selective layer of a first one of the at least one pair of adjacent cells and the first electrode layer of a second cell of the pair, which connection is made through the light harvesting layer common to the at least one pair of cells, without forming an electrical connection with the first electrode of the first cell or the second charge selective layer of the second cell; and a method of making such a photovoltaic cell module.
