Title: Guided crystallization of P3HT in ternary blend solar cell based on P3HT:PCPDTBT:PCBM

Abstract

In ternary blend of P3HT:PCPDTBT:PC 61BM, bundles of well-defined P3HT fibrils formed a network in a matrix comprised of a mixture of P3HT, PCPDTBT and PCBM yielding a 27% improvement in device efficiency.
