s glass substrate. These beads direct and scatter the light to enhance absorption in the active layer. The results demonstrate that a simple approach such as casting a film of similar to 100 nm diameter PSB from an aqueous suspension on the blank side of the OSC substrate can improve long-term performance, and that spin coating BPhen is a low-cost and easy approach to reduce charge recombination at the cathode in inverted structures for increased PCE and stability.
