This Standard was technically approved by the Photovoltaic Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on August 31, 2015. Available at and in October 2015.

This Standard provides performance test method for organic photovoltaic (OPV)/dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) according to its spectrum response (SR) measurement and device qualification.

The major difference between OPV/DSSC and p-n junction solar cell is photoelectric conversion mechanism.

The operation principle of OPV/DSSC is using layers of organic molecules subject to lighting after excitation electron then pass to the inorganic/organic layer of the wide energy gap nanolayer and voltage.

OPV/DSSC has different spectrum and absorption range from a p-n junction solar cell.

OPV/DSSC needs more photoelectric conversion response time caused by specific material properties.

Therefore, OPV/DSSC shall need specific basis of reference to differ with STC condition (AM 1.5G, 25°C, 1000 W·m–2) used by p-n junction solar cell, and also make reserves extra time for SR test due to capacitance effect.

The objective is to focus on OPV/DSSC SR evaluation for either indoors or outdoors and provides the following:

- Suitable statistic method to solve low response time issue for OPV/DSSC.

- A guideline to correct OPV/DSSC data measured under STC.

- A new isothermal platform standard for OPV/DSSC.
