Paper Abstract

Achieving efficient charge generation has been a challenge in the field of organic photovoltaics (OPVs). Therefore, it is important to understand the photophysical behaviour of a system in relation to the material properties. In this study, photophysical properties of a range of conjugated donor-acceptor polymers with varying crystallinity are investigated. Preliminary study shows a correlation between photophysics and polymer crystallinity.
