1. An organic solar cell, comprising an organic photoconductive layer comprising a charge generating substance and a charge transporting substance, and a protective layer covering the organic photoconductive layer blocking low-wavelength light of below 450 nm. Because of the presence of the protective layer, a change in photo-current due to photo-degradation of the charge transporting substance is suppressed while maintaining a high photo-electric conversion efficiency.
[[GlossaryDefinition::2. An organic solar cell or plastic solar cell is a type of photovoltaic that uses organic electronics, a branch of electronics that deals with conductive organic polymers or small organic molecules, for light absorption and charge transport to produce electricity from sunlight by the photovoltaic effect. Most organic photovoltaic cells are polymer solar cells.]]
