The advantages of Solution Processed Organic and Hybrid Perovskite Photovoltaics, such as their light weight, mechanical flexibility in addition to the small energy demand, and low-cost equipment requirements for roll-to-roll printing mass production, characterize them as interested candidate sources for future electrical power [1]. The presentation aims in covering a range of scientific and engineering issues needed to bring organic and hybrid perovskite solar cells to commercial viability in terms of efficiency, lifetime and cost [2-4]. A systematic understanding of the relationship between photovoltaic materials, interfaces and electrodes relevant to printed photovoltaics product development targets will be presented [5,6].
