A pentacene-C-60 bilayer heterojunction organic photovoltaic device with interpenetrating donor-acceptor interface was fabricated by nanoimprinting the pentacene layer prior to C-60 deposition. An amorphous silicon substrate nanostructured using an excimer laser was imprinted onto the pentacene layer at high temperature and pressure, using a nanoimprinting lithography system to form a textured pentacene surface. A fivefold improvement in power conversion efficiency was observed due to increased exciton dissociation at the large area heterojunction. Using the proposed technique, highly efficient bilayer large area heterojunction photovoltaics based on small molecule organic materials can be envisaged.
