Organic solar cells, particularly polymer/fullerene solar cells, are an important area of scientific research on the generation of sustainable and renewable energy. However, further optimization of solar device efficiency is still needed to reach commercialization.
In this talk, the relationship between active layer nanostructure and charge separation and recombination kinetics in thin films and solar devices fabricated with mixtures of PBTT-T/fullerene will be established. Via a combined theoretical and experimental kinetic study using Transient absorption spectroscopy (TAS) and Time-delayed collection field (TDCF) we clearly establish the effect of an intermixed versus a more flat interface towards the separation of bound charges and charge recombination regimes. This is further correlated with device performance, thus showing the importance of careful blend nanostructure control.
