This paper reports a comparison between the performances of photovoltaic cells based on perovskite materials and cells based on organic materials. Photovoltaic cells based on perovskite materials have better performance compared to cells based on organic materials. To study the influence of the donorľacceptor composition on the performance of the organic cells, three different active layers are used: P3HT:PCBM, P3HT:ICBA, PTB7:PC\(_{70}\)BM. The organic cells are produced and characterized in the glove box. Results show that cells with P3HT:ICBA give the best yield of 5.58%. Perovskite solar cells are produced under atmospheric conditions and using similar structure and devices for producing organic cells. The yield obtained from the perovskite cells is better than the organic cells: η\(_{perovskite}\)=8.81%. A discussion on the degradation and stability of organic and perovskite solar cells is presented.

Keywords: solar cells, perovskite, organic materials, structure, stability
