To increase performance of organic solar cells, the optimization of the electron-accepting fullerenes has received less attention. Here, we report an electronic structure study of a novel covalently linked C60-C70-heterodimer in blend with the polymer PCDTBT. Upon optical excitation of polymer:heterodimer solid films, the electron is shared between both C60 and C70 cages. In contrast, in the solution the electron is localized on one half of the dimer. Electronic structure calculations reveal that for the heterodimer two nearly iso-energetic minima exist, essentially the cis and trans conformers. These conformers have different edge-to-edge distance between the two cages and therefor the electron is either shared between two dimer halves (cis) or localized on one half of the heterodimer (trans). By comparison with the experimental data, we conclude that the cis conformation is preferable in films, and the trans conformation in solution. These findings demonstrate how electronic coupling of the fullerene acceptor molecules is influenced by their packing in blends, which may have an impact on the charge carrier generation efficiency in solar cells.
