In this study, we compare a series of hole collector layers (HCLs) with pore structure fabricated via an electrochemical method to construct polymer-fullerene solar cells. The HCLs with a pore structure can offer a large interface to enhance hole collection; however, the series resistances are also increased by the relatively pore morphology. Photovoltaic device with the largest short circuit current (Jsc) and efficiency is achieved using poly(3,4-prppylenedioxythiophene) (PProDoT) as HCLs due to its highly porous structure and reasonable series resistance. By further optimizing the thickness of the HCLs in the solar cell, a power efficiency of 3.57% under simulated sun light is achieved.
