Diindenoperylene (DIP) and Tetraphenyldibenzoperiflanthene (DBP) are two common materials used in organic solar cell devices. While DIP is growing crystalline, showing good charge and exciton transport but only weak absorption, DBP exhibits an amorphous character, leading to lower carrier mobility and a short exciton diffusion length, however, DBP reveals a distinctly higher absorption. For both materials we investigate the influence of solvent vapor annealing (SVA) on solar cell performance. In general, SVA leads to a reorganization of the treated materials due to a partial re-solubilization of the layers, allowing the molecules to rearrange into structures characterized by a higher degree of order . Though, for DBP, extended annealing times lead to a strong aggregation of the molecules, resulting in inhomogeneous layers unfavorable for solar cells. For DIP cells however, SVA leads to an increase in fill factor (FF) and also a slight increase in short-circuit current density (Jsc) due to interface roughening. Nevertheless, the best results are obtained by combining annealed DIP layers with strongly absorbing DBP and C70 on top. Thereby, we obtain the same increase in FF but a higher gain in Jsc, elevating the power conversion efficiency by almost 20 % up to more than 4 %.
