Abstract: Lately, research efforts in photovoltaics towards hybrid solar cells based on nanostructured metal oxides and conjugated polymers have been intensifying. However, very limited effort has been spent so far to investigate their recombination kinetics in comparison with their fully organic counterpart. In this work, impedance spectroscopy under different illumination intensities is used to probe the recombination kinetics of hybrid solar cells based on ZnO nanorod arrays and poly(3-hexylthiophene). A recombination-based model developed for fully organic solar cells is effectively applied in our hybrid solar cells, demonstrating their similarity in device physics and establishing the nanorod array/polymer compound as true bulk heterojunction.
