Fullerene-based thin films as a novel polycrystalline semiconductor

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

14 Scopus citations


Recent results of some experimental studies of growth, crystalline and electronic structure of fullerene thin films in connection with the semiconductor properties of the material are reviewed. Some unusual phenomena in fullerene thin films such as a persistent photoconductivity and persistent internal photopolarization are discussed. Advantages and limitations of the material for the possible device applications are illustrated mainly by the results of fullerene-based solar cells construction and investigation.
