We study the photo-electron properties of organic photovoltaic molecules using Koopmans-compliant functionals [1] as well as the Perdew-Zunger self-interaction correction (PZ-SIC) [2] to density-functional theory. A simple method for simulating ultraviolet photo-emission spectra (UPS) of molecules has been implemented. It is based on a plane-wave approximation for the final states to account for the spectra intensities. Our calculations show that Koopmans-compliant functionals provide ionization potentials and electron affinities closely comparable with those obtained by many-body perturbation theory (GW). In addition, we find that UPS spectra computed imposing the Koopmans' condition on the PZ-SIC functional are in remarkable agreement with experimental results.
