Abstract :

Photogenerated charge transfer behavior from a p-type poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) donor material to an n-type fullerene and non-fullerene acceptor materials have been studied in blend solution with the help of photoluminescence (PL) quenching. The PL spectra were studied using two different excitation sources. The small gap fullerene-ethyl nipecotate and phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) are fullerene-based and poly naphthalene-bithiophene (N2200) is a non-fullerene-based n-type acceptor material used in this research work. Observation shows that the P3HT:N2200 blend with a weight ratio of 1:0.07 in solution results in an efficient photogenerated charge transfer from P3HT to N2200.
