A model for polymer Solar Cells is presented consisting of a system of nonlinear diffusion-reaction PDEs with electrostatic convection, coupled to a kinetic ODE. A proof of the existence of both stationary and transient solutions is given and an algorithm for computing them is proposed and numerically validated by comparison with experimentally measured data for a photovoltaic cell.

Abstract

A model for polymer Solar Cells is presented consisting of a system of nonlinear diffusion-reaction PDEs with electrostatic convection, coupled to a kinetic ODE. A proof of the existence of both stationary and transient solutions is given and an algorithm for computing them is proposed and numerically validated by comparison with experimentally measured data for a photovoltaic cell.
