1. Device fabrication
The fabrication of state-of-the-art devices will be carried out by specialized member laboratories that have the facilities to continuously provide a large enough number of comparable samples for all partners. For selecting the device structure advice from the industrial associates and the WG1 will be essential.
2. Test structures fabrication
In parallel to fully working OPV devices, comparable test structures consisting of a few layers will be made at this stage. This test structures will be aged and analysed in parallel to understand interfacial mixing, reaction and degradation. The recommendations from experts in characterization in WG4 will be followed.
To provide reproducible and large number of devices and test structures to the partners for the different degradation scenarios and, thereafter, non-destructive and destructive analysis.
