Influence of functionalized side chains of polythiophene diblock copolymers on the performance of CdSe quantum dot hybrid solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

The incorporation of functional groups into the side chains of polythiophenes can improve the phase separation of polymer : nanoparticle hybrid solar cells (HSCs). Our results showed that by introducing 17 mol% thiol functionality in the polymer, the Jsc and Voc can be increased by twofold in polymer : CdSe quantum dot (QD) HSCs.
