Abstract

image

Chun-Sing Lee, Tsz-Wai Ng, and co-workers demonstrate in article 1300082 the significant OPV device stability enhancement by direct charge manipulation of organic donor molecules using nano-island structured MoO3 features. The charge-transfer complex forming at the MoO3/donor contact results in charge redistribution in donor molecules and suppression of the time-dependent chemical reaction at the donor/acceptor interface.
