Thin films composed of zinc tetraphenylporphyrin-end-functionalized polycyclohexane and [6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester blends are prepared to investigate their potential as light-harvesting systems within PSCs. The extent to which the absorption bands of the films overlapped the terrestrial solar spectrum is increased considerably when the blends formed a co-continuous structure. These polymer blend films may be considered as viable candidates for light-harvesting systems within PSCs.
