This Ph.D. Thesis focuses on the investigation of organic photovoltaic (OPV) technology, especially in aspects of experimental device processing, and optoelectronic and electrical characterization on OPV devices to be readily marketable. More specifically, the topics addressed are the following: origin of recombination current,open-circuit voltage and crystallinity, transport driving force, contact selectivity and interface states, alternative hole transporting layers and oxygen and degradation routes.
