The project proposal has as a main objective to achieve a more profound understanding at the molecular scale of the nanomorphology-performance relationship in active layer blends for bulk heterojunction (BHJ) organic solar cells, and thus focuses specifically on the relationship between the molecular structures and supramolecular organization within the active layer and the device physics responsible for the solar cell performance. As such, the research activities involved concentrate on the synthesis of active organic materials, the study of the physicochemical properties of the active layer (components and blend), the morphological structure of the blend, and the electro-optical characterization of devices prepared from these blends. As a direct impact of the project, a rational design of materials and active layers for OPV can be expected, providing a starting point for efficiency improvement of organic solar cells.
