Toney Bulk Heterojunction Solar Cells: A Mechanistic Understanding of Processing Additive-Induced Efficiency Enhancement in Bulk Heterojunction Organic Solar Cells (Adv. Mater. 2/2014) Advanced Materials 26
The introduction of processing additives is widely used to increase power conversion efficiencies in organic solar cells. Michael F. Toney, Jeremy R. Niskala and co-workers show on page 300 how additives change the polymer conformation in the casting solution leading to a more-intermixed phase-segregated network structure of the organic solar-cell active layer. This results in a five-fold enhancement in efficiency.
