We demonstrate the use of screen printing in the fabrication of ultrasmooth organic-based solar cells. Organic films on the order of several tens of nanometers in thickness and 2.6 nm surface roughness were made. The first-generation screen-printed plastic solar cells demonstrated 4.3% in power conversion efficiency when using an aluminum electrode and 488 nm illumination.
