In this work, we report Copper Sulfide (CuS) as a solution processed, Inexpensive and effective hole transport layer (HTL) for efficient and low cost organic solar cells. These devices were fabricated using two most studied low band gap donor materials PTB7 and PCDTBT blended with PC71BM as an acceptor material. We have used a simplest device architect such as ITO/CuS/active layer/Al at ambient conditions. The power conversion efficiencies (PCBs) of these devices have been achieved to up to 4.32% and1.76 % for PTB7 and PCDTBT based devices respectively. Finally, we have provided a further example of solution processable CuS as an effective HTL for solution processable organic photovoltaic applications.
