The transport properties of electrons in C60 based molecules (see Figure), as used in conjugated polymer based solar cells have been investigated. At room temperature, the electrons in the C60 based molecules are a factor of four thousand more mobile than the holes in the conjugated polymer. These results are of fundamental importance to further the understanding of polymer/C60 solar cells.
