The effect of aging on the photovoltaic characteristics of homely fabricated ZnO-CuO based bulk heterojunction solar cells (BHJSCs) including optical, electrical, chemical,and surface morphological properties of the spin-coated ZnO-CuO bulk thin films has been investigatedin this article. The experimental results of open-air spin-coated bulk films on glass substrate reveal that the surface roughness, percentage of oxide composition,and electrical resistivity including the optical absorption isincreased with aging. Alsp, the photovoltaic parameters of FTO/ZnO-CuO/Al BHJSCs have been decreased while the open-circuit voltage are increased noticeably with aging. These results indicate that the aging of bulk ZnO-CuO thin films has unavoidable consequences on the performance of ZnO-CuO-based BHJSCs..
