Interdigitated Electrical Contacts for Low Electronic Mobility Semiconductor Photovoltaic Devices
Structures useful for forming contacts to materials having low charge carrier mobility are described. Methods for their formation and use are also described. These structures include interdigitated electrodes capable of making electrical contact to semiconducting materials having low electron and/or whole mobility. In particular, these structures are useful for organic semiconducting devices made with conducting polymers and small molecules. They are also useful for semiconducting devices made with nanocrystalline semiconductors.
