Planar Schottky photovoltaic devices were prepared from solution-processed PbS nanocrystal quantum dot films with aluminum and indium tin oxide contacts. These devices exhibited up to 4.2% infrared power conversion efficiency, which is a threefold improvement over previous results. Solar power conversion efficiency reached 1.8%. The simple, optimized architecture allows for direct implementation in multijunction photovoltaic device configurations.
