Polymer solar cell technology is still under development in the key area of stability. An ultrathin atomic-layer-deposited dielectric oxide layer is inserted into inverted architecture polymer solar cells in order to address the issues that arise from the defect-rich nature of ZnO electron extraction material. Considerable improvement of the device efficiency and stability is observed.
