Polymer photovoltaic (PV) device prepared with a vertical phase separation has intensified the research on the effectiveness of the concentration graded active layer. In this paper, a polymer PV device with a poly(3-hexylthiophene)/ [6,6]-phenyl C61 -butyric acidmethyl ester (P3HT/PCBM) bilayers active film with a concentration gradient has been fabricated via solution process. The concentration variation has been confirmed by the Auger spectroscopy. The devices showed an enhanced photocurrent density and power conversion efficiency compared to those of the bulk heterojunction PV prepared under the same fabrication condition.
