In this contribution we report on investigations of the electronic structure and composition of regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) based films by using Near Edge X-Ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS). The measurements were done at the U49/2-PGM2 beam line of BESSY II, Berlin using TEY (total electron yield) and TFY (total fluorescence yield) detection. The samples were produced by spin casting a mixture of P3HT (dissolved in chloroform) and PCBM (dissolved in chlorobenzene) on ITO (indium tin oxide) coated glass slides. Measurements of pure P3HT and PCBM show all typical excitations, whereas the blended system is a weighted superposition of the related peaks. Analyzing these weighted superposition, we observe in the surface sensitive TEY data an accumulation of P3HT, whereas in the bulk sensitive TFY signal an as expected mixture is found. We also show angular dependent NEXAFS measurements of the P3HT/PCBM blend in order to measure the orientation and distribution of the P3HT polymer. Additionally, we will show a new approach for organic solar cell application by introducing ferroelectric nanoparticles into the mixture.
