Title: Ethynylene-linked benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophene-alt-diketopyrrolopyrrole alternating copolymer: optoelectronic properties, film morphology and photovoltaic applications

Abstract

An ethynylene-linked copolymer was synthesized for increasing theV ocof organic solar cells. And a highV ocof 0.88 V was achieved due to the low-lying HOMO level.
