Abstract
<p>Superior absorption of PC(71)BM in visible region to that of PC(61)BM makes PC(71)BM a predominant acceptor for most high efficient polymer solar cells (PSCs). However, we will demonstrate that power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) of PSCs based on poly[N,N-bis(2-hexyldecyl)isoindigo-6, 6-diyl-alt-thiophene-2,5-diyl] (PTI-1) with PC(61)BM as acceptor are 50% higher than their PC71BM counterparts under illumination of AM1.5G. AFM images reveal different topographies of the blends between PTI-1:PC(61)BM and PTI-1:PC(71)BM, which suggests that acceptors miscibility plays a more important role than absorption. The photocurrent of 9.1 mA/cm(2) is among the highest value in PSCs with a driving force for exciton dissociation less than 0.2 eV.</p>
