Application of Artificial Intelligence for Optimization of Organic Solar Cells Production Process




The study of organic solar cells (OSCs) has been rapidly developed in recent years. Organic solar cell technology is sought after mainly due to the ease of manufacture and their exclusive properties such as mechanical flexibility, light-weight, and transparency. These properties of OSCs are well-suited for unconventional applications with power conversion efficiencies more high than 10%. The flexibility of the used substrates and the thinness of the devices make OSCs ideal for roll-to-roll production. However the organic solar cells still have very low conversion efficiencies due to degradation and stability of the technology. In order to extract their full potential, OSCs have to be optimized. On the other hand the production chain of the organic solar cells (OSC) can take advantage of the use of artificial intelligence (AI). In fact the integration into the production workflow makes solar cells more competitive and efficient. This paper presents some applications of the AI for optimization of OSCs production processes
