In this contribution we investigate the field- and temperature-dependence of luminescence quenching in organic solar cells (OSCs) employing a streak camera. We study the prototypical system PTB7:PC71BM, where different emissive species i.e. singlet and CT states can be identified by choosing appropriate excitation conditions. The quenching behavior and PL dynamics are satisfactorily reproduced by a kinetic model based on exciton dissociation via a hopping mechanism, allowing us to take the important influence of disorder into account. Moreover, our experimental and simulative approach suggests that the binding energy of the emissive CT state (ca. 50 meV) is about one order of magnitude below that of singlet states. The absence of strongly bound CT states acting as ’deep’ traps could essentially contribute to the high efficiency of the studied OSCs.
