Bulk-heterojunction polymer solar cells (PSCs) are composed of a blend active layer of a p-type conjugated polymer as donor and an n-type semiconductor as acceptor sandwiched between an anode and a cathode where at least one of the two electrodes should be transparent. Over the last decade soluble fullerene derivatives (PC60BM,PC70BM,ICBA) were the only choice of n-type semiconductors for PSCs...   More >
