Samenvatting

We discuss the materials challenges for increasing cell efficiencies of polymer solar cells via the route
of stacking several cells on top of each other in multi-junction solar cells. For such cells, the recombination layer
between the two sub cells is crucial. Typically, the recombination layer consists of a semi-transparent n- and p-type
semiconductor bilayer. Several options for the recombination layer will be discussed. Furthermore, we discuss how
the workfunction and the conductivity of the semi-transparent semiconductors may influence the performance of the
cells. We also discuss requirements for accurate measurements of spectral response and efficiency.
