Abstract: The optoelectronic properties of heterojunction thin film devices with ITO/CuPc/C60/Al structure have been investigated by analyzing their current–voltage characteristics, optical absorption and photocurrent. In this organic photovoltaic device, CuPc acts as an optically active layer, C60 as an electron-transporting layer and ITO and Al as electrodes. It is observed that, under illumination, excitons are formed, which subsequently drift towards the interface with C60, where an internal electric field is present. The excitons that reach the interface are subsequently dissociated into free charge carriers due to the electric field present at the interface. The experimental results show that in this device the total current density is a function of injected carriers at the electrode–organic semiconductor surface, the leakage current through the organic layer and collected photogenerated current that results from the effective dissociation of excitons.
