Title: Energy sensitization of acceptors and donors in organic photovoltaics

Abstract

Disclosed herein are organic photosensitive optoelectronic devices comprising acceptor and/or donor sensitizers to increase absorption and photoresponse of the photoactive layers of the devices. In particular, devices herein include at least one acceptor layer and at least one donor layer, wherein the acceptor layer may comprise a mixture of an acceptor material and at least one sensitizer, and the donor layer may comprise a mixture of a donor material and at least one sensitizer. Methods of fabricating the organic photosensitive optoelectronic devices are also disclosed.
