We discuss a fiber-shaped organic photovoltaic (PV) cell that utilizes concentric thin films of small molecular weight compounds and metals, permitting illumination normal to the fiber axis. Individual PV fibers exhibit performance inferior to planar cells for illumination normal to the fiber axis, but are projected to have superior averaged power generation for systems without solar tracking.
