In this study, photovoltaic fiber was developed using organic solar cell materials and inverted layer sequence. Light absorbing nano-materials were deposited as photoactive layer on metal and buffer layer coated thin and flexible fiber. While light was passing through a semi-transparent anode based on thin PEDOT:PSS and Au metal layers, electricity was generated. Photovoltaic performance of devices were measured and evaluated. This design can be used for smart textiles after further optimization.
