Abstract

The work reported here explores the impact of polymer morphology on the physics and performance of perylene benzimidazole / poly(3-hexylthiophene) bilayer photovoltaic devices. By varying both the annealing temperature and the solvent used for polymer deposition, we demonstrate control of the polymer chain morphology. An increase in the relative ordering of the polymer chain conformation is observed through a shift in the absorption onset and absorption spectral shape, and results in improved photovoltaic performance.
