The solubility of organic semiconductors in environmentally benign solvents is an important prerequisite for the widespread adoption of organic electronic appliances. Solubility can be determined by considering the cohesive forces in a liquid via Hansen solubility parameters (HSP). We report a numerical approach to determine the HSP of fullerenes using a(More)
The production of high-performance, solution-processed kesterite Cu2ZnSn(Sx,Se1-x)4 (CZTSSe) solar cells typically relies on high-temperature crystallization processes in chalcogen-containing atmosphere and often on the use of environmentally harmful solvents, which could hinder the widespread adoption of this technology. We report a method for processing(More)
The present paper focuses on using fuzzy logic as a useful tool to manage energy resources in buildings and to reduce their energy impact. To that purpose, one requires the design and the implementation of efficient and readily adaptable control schemes. As everyone knows, fuzzy logic allows taking advantage of the flexibility offered by linguistic(More)
A novel main-chain polyfullerene, poly[fullerene-alt-2,5-bis(octyloxy)terephthalaldehyde] (PPC4), is investigated for its hypothesized superior morphological stability as an electron-accepting material in organic photovoltaics relative to the widely used fullerene phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM). When mixed with poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl)(More)
