Solution-processed bilayer heterojunction hybrid solar cells have been fabricated using size-quantized PbS nanoparticles and poly (3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT). PbS was used as an electron-transporting layer whereas P3HT was used for hole transport. A photovoltaic device consisting of PbS and P3HT exhibited 3% incident photon to current efficiencies (IPCE) under 550-nm monochromatic irradiation.
