Electrical and Hall Effect Study of Hybrid Solar Cell

N. A. Nik Aziz, M. I. N. Isa, and S. Hasiah
Abstract—This work focuses on electrical and Hall Effect study of hybrid solar cell (HSCs). In particular, attention is given to investigations of HSCs with the architecture combining conjugated p-type polymer, poly (3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT), and inorganic ZnO heterojunctions with chlorophyll (CHLO) from marine microalgae as a dye. The films were prepared by spin coating technique and analyzed by using four point probes to calculate the conductivity. The results show that, the conductivity was increased by the increment of light intensity and concentration of CHLO. Lastly, the samples were analyzed using Hall Effect measurement to calculate the highest charge carrier in the sample of hybrid solar cell.

Index Terms—Chloropyhll, hybrid solar cell, poly (3-hexylthiophene), zinc oxide.
