New Strategy to Improve Thermal Stability of Small-Molecule-Based Bulk-Heterojunction Organic Photovoltaics

New Strategy to Improve Thermal Stability of Small-Molecule-Based Bulk-Heterojunction Organic Photovoltaics

Using flexible aliphatic chains to link conjugated molecular semiconductors Andrea Gasperini devloped a polymeric material that possesses defined conjugated segments but extended covalent connectivity that enhances crystallinity and thermal stability in field-effect transistors and bulk heterojunction solar-cell devices when used as an additive. The results are pulished in Advanced Materials. [More]
