One of the most promising candidates for bulk heterojunction (BHJ) solar cells nowadays is the material combination of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT):[6,6]-phenyl-C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM). One of the prerequisites for a well-performing BHJ solar cell is that the respective mobilities for transporting electrons on the fullerene and holes on the polymer are rather balanced, in order to avoid a space charge building up. We investigated the charge carrier mobility in P3HT:PCBM blend devices by applying the time resolved photoconductivity experiment as a function of the donor:acceptor ratio. We observed bipolar transport in all studied samples ranging from pure polymer to polymer:fullerene with 90% PCBM content. Furthermore, two transit times in the hole and electron current transients were found [1]. We discuss their origin in terms of electron (hole) transport on P3HT (PCBM), respectively and simulate the hopping transport by using Monte Carlo simulation.
