Organic solar cells (OSC) have great potential for flexible and wearable electronics due to their significant energy supply. However, the brittleness of inorganic electron transport layers (ETL) and their large-area production make it difficult to use them in flexible inverted OSCs. Herein, an organic-inorganic hybrid cathode interlayer of incorporating poly(4-vinylphenol) (P4VP) into the ZnO precursor solution was developed. The addition of P4VP improves the conductibility of ETL and facilitates the favorable vertical component distribution of active layer on the ZnO:P4VP substrate. Thus, the blade-coated OSC based on ZnO:P4VP performs better than the ZnO-based OSC in terms of photovoltaic performance and thickness insensitivity. The P4VP acts as an adhesive in ZnO grain boundaries and eliminates cracks in the bent ETL, leading to a significantly improved mechanical flexibility. Consequently, the ZnO:P4VP-based large-area flexible OSC achieves a power conversion efficiency of 14.05% and retains 80% of its initial efficiency after 1000 bending cycles, which is much better than that based on pristine ZnO (12.26%, 44%). Furthermore, flexible inverted organic solar modules were fabricated and achieved a considerable efficiency of 12.01%. These findings provide a general approach for using inorganic materials in flexible and wearable electronics.
