Title: Effects of 1,8-diiodooctane on domain nanostructure and charge separation dynamics in PC 71 BM-based bulk heterojunction solar cells

Abstract

Transient absorption and X-ray scattering demonstrate 1,8-diiodooctane impact on morphology and charge generation in mixed phases in bulk heterojunction solar cells.
