This research paper reports the enhanced hole-transporting ability of widely utilized poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) achieved by applying cationic nitrogen-doped graphene (CNG) as a p-type modifier for efficient organic solar cells (OSCs). The power conversion efficiency (PCE) of the CNG-coated PEDOT:PSS-applied OSC reaches 2.76%, which is an increase of 40% compared to that of the pristine PEDOT:PSS-applied OSC (1.96%). The significantly enhanced performance is contributed by the increased hole-transporting ability, and the improved interfacial morphology of PEDOT:PSS, which affords high-quality active layers.
