CT states at the electron donor–acceptor interface are key intermediates in bulk-heterojunction organic solar cells. A new general method allows determining their energy and provides insight into energetic losses in these cells. CT states may form with only 0.1 eV loss from the singlet excited state, but a major loss of 0.5 eV occurs when going to open-circuit, limiting the ultimate power conversion efficiency.
