Polymethacrylate carrying lateral chromophores synthesized by free radical polymerization are used as donors for the fabrication of solar cells. As expected, polymer based solar cells with PC71BM as an acceptor demonstrate a PCE of 1.22%, which is two times higher than that of the corresponding small organic molecule-based solar cells.
