Paper Abstract

The S-shaped J-V curves in planar heterojunction organic solar cells (OSCs) using triplet material bis[2-(4- tertbutylphenyl)benzothi azolato-N, C2,] iridium (acetylacetonate) [(t-bt)2Ir(acac)] as donor and C60 as acceptor were diminished by substrate heating during film deposition of (t-bt)2Ir(acac) layer. Mobility measurements showed that the disappearance of S-kinks was attributed to the significant increase of hole mobility in (t-bt)2Ir(acac) by heating the substrate during evaporation and thus the decrease of mobility mismatch between electrons and holes, leading to the improvement of fill factor (FF). Moreover, the photocurrent density (Jph) of heated device was remarkable enhanced and showed decreased space charge limited (SCL) effect due to the balanced charge transport and the increase of charge collection efficiency (ηCC). As a result, by heating the substrate at 70 ℃, a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 1.63 % was achieved compared to 1.37 % for the unheated device. Using this method, organic solar cells based on triplet materials allow thicker active layer thickness for light absorption without introducing much fill factor loss.
