This paper presents in-depth analysis of the current-voltage (I-V) and capacitance-voltage (C-V) characteristics of identically prepared Au/Pyrene(C16H10)/n-Si hybrid organic-oninorganic semiconductor photovoltaic cells (total 43 diodes). The barrier heights, ideality factors and reverse bias saturation currents of all devices were extracted from the electrical characteristics. The mean barrier height, mean ideality factor and mean saturation current from I-V measurements were calculated as 0.79 ± 0.01 eV, 1.40 ± 0.08 and (1.01 ± 0.46)x10-8 A, respectively. Also, the photoelectric (I-V) and photocapacitance (C-V and conductance (G)-voltage (V)) characteristics of the Au/Pyrene/n-Si device under 100 mW/cm2 light illumination were investigated. It has been seen that the light illumination increases strongly the current, capacitance and conductance values of the device due to electron-hole charge pair generation. The C-V and G-V characteristics under illumination have shown a non-monotonic dependence of capacitance on frequency giving rise to a peak. This is attributed to the existence of electrically active traps. The open circuit voltage and short circuit current of the Au/Pyrene/n-Si device were extracted as 80 mV and 30 µA, respectively.
