Functional Polymers: Advanced Functional Polymers for Increasing the Stability of Organic Photovoltaics
Eva Bundgaard, Martin Helgesen, Jon E. Carlé, Frederik C. Krebs, and Mikkel Jørgensen*
New polymers for organic photovoltaics are developed to increase their stability in devices, both with respect to photochemical and morphological degradation mechanisms. One solution is to incorporate labile side chains that can be split off by heat or light treatment during the production as shown in the figure.
