Abstract : The work is oriented toward five areas: (1) measurement of the photovoltaic conversion efficiency as a solar cell, (2) analysis of the spectral response of the quantum yield, (3) analysis of the transient response with a pulsed light source, (4) model analysis of the configuration of the organic semiconductor solar cell and (5) the aging phenomenon of tetracene solar cells. The work in areas (1) to (4) is completed together with physical interpretations. Area (5), which requires measurements over an extended period of time, but is of fundamental importance from the point of view of practical application, has not been able to be completed before the termination of the present contract, and a stage of physical interpretation has not been reached.
