This thesis reports about the research in the application of colloidal nanocrystals in organic solar cells. In order to make organic solar cells sensitive in the near infrared and in addition increase the efficiency of solar cells, PbS nanocrystals are added to the well known P3HT/PCBM blend. Thin films composed by the 3component blend, made by doctor-blading and spin-coating, are used as active layer of solar cells. Efficiencies slightly above the 2% are achieved, however limited reproducibility of the results is obtained. The control of the morphology of the active layer turned out to be very challenging.
