A nonfullerene-based polymer solar cell (PSC) that significantly outperforms fullerene-based PSCs with respect to the power-conversion efficiency is demonstrated for the first time. An efficiency of >11%, which is among the top values in the PSC field, and excellent thermal stability is obtained using PBDB-T and ITIC as donor and acceptor, respectively.
Low-work-function active metals are commonly used as cathode in polymer solar cells (PSCs), but sensitivity of the active metals towards moisture and oxygen results in poor stability of the devices. Therefore, solution-proceessable and stable cathode buffer layer is of great importance for the application of PSCs. Here we demonstrate high performance PSCs(More)
High-performance inverted polymer solar cells (PSCs) with solution-processed titanium chelate TIPD as electron collecting layer are reported. The power conversion efficiency (PCE) of the inverted PSC with a-TIPD buffer layer with thermal annealing at 150 °C for 10 min reached 7.4% under the illumination of AM1.5, 100 mW/cm(2), which is increased by 16% in(More)
We report efficient polymer solar cells (PSCs) based on poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and indene-C(60) bisadduct (ICBA) with water soluble nickel acetate (NiAc) instead of acidic poly(ethylenedioxythiophene) : poly(styrene sulfonate) (PEDOT : PSS) as hole collection layer (HCL). The NiAc layer after thermal annealing at 150 °C for 30 min (α-NiAc) shows high(More)
A novel polythiophene derivative, PBT1, was designed, synthesized, and applied in polymer solar cells (PSCs). This work provides a successful example of using molecular structure as a tool to realize optimal photovoltaic performance with high polymer content, thus enabling the realization of efficient photoabsorption in very thin films. As a result, an(More)
A solution-processed vanadium oxide (s-VO(x)) anode buffer layer on an indium-tin-oxide (ITO) electrode was used instead of PEDOT:PSS for improving the stability and photovoltaic performance of the polymer solar cells (PSCs). The s-VO(x) layer was prepared by spin-coating a vanadyl acetylacetonate (VO(acac)(2)) isopropyl alcohol solution on the ITO(More)
In recent 20 years, the city of Wuhan has built a big high-tech industry cluster which is named Optics Valley of China. The Optics Valley of China is developing quickly, but scarcity of talent has become the bottleneck for its development. Recruiting talented worker is significant concern and the influence factors of talent flow have been explored. The(More)
An integrated device architecture was constructed via vertical combination of planar and bulk heterojunctions by solution processing, where a cross-linked D-A copolymer (PBDTTT-Br25) was inserted between a PEDOT:PSS layer and the blended photoactive layer. PBDTTT-Br25 can readily undergo photo crosslinking to form an insoluble robust film via ultraviolet(More)
