Over the past decades, organic solar cells based on semiconducting polymers or small molecules have become a promising alternative to traditional inorganic photovoltaic devices. However, to address the intrinsic limitations of organic materials, such as charge separation yield, charge transport and durability, new strategies based on hybrid organic/inorganic materials have been explored. One such approach exploits mesoporous inorganic nanostructures as electron acceptors, which takes advantage of the potential to control the active layer structure and interface morphology through nanoparticle synthesis and processing. In this work, the potential of hybrid photovoltaics will be discussed and illustrated through a recent study of bulk heterojunction systems based on the blend of TiO2 nanorods with a conjugated polymer.

Depuis plus de deux décennies, les cellules solaires organiques basées sur lʼutilisation de molécules ou de polymères semi-conducteurs ont démontré de fortes potentialités. Néanmoins, et pour répondre aux limitations intrinsèques dues aux matériaux organiques (nature de lʼexciton, durée de vie limitée, etc.), de nouvelles stratégies de composants hybrides basés sur lʼassociation de matériaux organiques et inorganiques ont vu le jour. Ces nouvelles approches, basées sur lʼutilisation de couches mésoporeuses inorganiques ou de nanocristaux semi-conducteurs accepteurs dʼélectrons, permettent en particulier un contrôle fin des architectures et des interfaces à lʼéchelle nanométrique. Dans ce contexte, ce travail a pour objectif la description des potentialités des composants hybrides pour la conversion photovoltaïque en sʼappuyant sur un exemple récent de cellule à hétérojonction basée sur le mélange de nanofils de TiO2 avec un polymère conjugué. Pour citer cet article : J. Bouclé et al., C. R. Physique 9 (2008).
