Semitransparent colorful organic solar cells (OSC) provide exciting opportunities for harnessing sunlight as colored windows. Previously, color filter (CF) electrodes on (OSC) were demonstrated via vacuum-deposition techniques, resulting in deposition-induced damage. Thus, we present CF integrated organic photovoltaics (CF-OPVs) using solution-processed TiO2-AcAc as the dielectric component. The noninvasive processing substantially expands the range of usable active materials, allowing the device to display pure and vibrant colors that are independent of the inherent color of the active material and show superior optical and photovoltaic characteristics. These results provide practical pathways to realizing colored semitransparent solar cells.
