Organic semiconductors with higher carrier mobility and better transparency have been actively pursued for numerous applications, such as flat-panel display backplane and sensor arrays. The carrier mobility is an important figure of merit and is sensitively influenced by the crystallinity and the molecular arrangement in a crystal lattice. Here we describe(More)
The most efficient organic solar cells produced to date are bulk heterojunction (BHJ) photovoltaic devices based on blends of semiconducting polymers such as poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT) with fullerene derivatives such as [6,6]-penyl-C 61-butyric-acid-methyl-ester (PCBM). The need for blending the two components is based on the idea that the(More)
We examine the ultrafast dynamics of exciton migration and polaron production in sequentially processed 'quasi-bilayer' and preblended 'bulk heterojunction' (BHJ) solar cells based on conjugated polymer films that contain the same total amount of fullerene. We find that even though the polaron yields are similar, the dynamics of polaron production are(More)
