Organic solar cells (OSCs) have recently gained increasing attention due to their rapidly increasing efficiencies as well as the relatively easy scalability in their production. However, their manufacture relies heavily on the use of halogenated solvents, as organic solar cells made with environmentally friendly solvents often suffer from reduced performance. This can be partially reversed by raising the temperature of the solvents during formation of the bulk-heterojunction (BHJ).
We investigate and compare the changes in morphology and performance stability of PTQ10:BTP-4F OSCs processed from various solvents, utilising operando grazing-incidence X-ray scattering during illumination and solar cell operation. We further show the impact of solvent composition on the charge carrier dynamics in the respective BHJs using time-resolved transient absorption spectroscopy.
