We present surface engineering of the top electrode in organic solar cells through soft contact lamination. A polymer conductor and a self-assembled monolayer material are utilized for the surface engineering of gold electrode in a polymer bulk-heterojunction solar cell. Approximately a threefold increase in the overall power conversion efficiency is shown to be realized with the surface engineering, which is made possible by the lamination.
