Exciton Dynamics of P3HT:PCBM Blend Films with Different Polymer Regioregularities Using Transient Absorption Spectroscopy
The poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and phenyl-C-61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) blending is one of the most intensively studied active material systems for bulk-heterojunction (BHJ) organic photovoltaic devices. For the active layer with BHJ structure, the charge tranfer (CT) and exciton dissociation processes between P3HT and PCBM are the important initial steps to form free charge carriers in the active layer. To compare the CT related species from the transient absorption dynamics in P3HT:PCBM blend systems with different orderings of the polymer, we investigated the charge carrier dynamics in P3HT:PCBM blend films with regiorandom and regioregular polymer structures using femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy.
