Optimization of the energy levels of alternating CPDT-X copolymers is achieved by varying the electron-deficient aromatic segment and results in materials that feature minimal energy losses in bulk-heterojunction solar cells. For PCPDT-BO:PCBM, the offset between the band gap and open-circuit voltage cell is only ∼0.7 eV. This low offset contributes to its high power conversion efficiency (2.5%).
