Solar energy is ubiquitous, but for solar cells to contribute significantly to global energy supply they need to be cheaper than the current silicon technology and capable of being produced over vast areas. Solar cells based on semiconducting polymers are therefore attractive since they can be produced by roll-to-roll printing onto flexible substrates. I will describe some of the science surrounding organic solar cells, addressing the issues of how to separate charges in an organic semiconductor, how to reduce recombination losses, and how to image and control nanostructures on the nanometre lengthscales required.
