Substantial photovoltaic response and morphology tuning in benzo[1,2-b:6,5-b′]dithiophene (bBDT) molecular donors

Author affiliations

Abstract

The influence of solubilizing substituents on the photovoltaic performance and thin-film blend morphology of new benzo[1,2-b:6,5-b′]dithiophene (bBDT) based small molecule donor semiconductors is investigated. Solar cells based on bBDT(TDPP)2-PC71BM with two different types of side chains exhibit high power conversion efficiencies, up to 5.53%.
