Functional Polymers: Near-Infrared Photovoltaic Performance of Conjugated Polymers Containing Thienoisoindigo Acceptor Units
Makoto Karakawa*, Yoshio Aso*
NIR-absorbing donor-acceptor-type polymers containing the thienoisoindigo unit are synthesized. The UV-vis spectra of the polymers show features that extended up to 1200 nm in the NIR. The organic photovoltaic cells using the synthesized polymers show a photocurrent response in the NIR with power conversion efficiency up to 0.52% under AM 1.5 photo irradiation.
