  1. 1. Thin films of polyfluorene:fullerene blends - Morphology and its role in solar cell performance

    Author : Cecilia Björström Svanström; Ellen Moons; Jean Manca; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Polymer Solar Cells; Polymer Blends; Morphology; Polyfluorene; PCBM; AFM; SIMS; Spin-Coating; Surface Directed Spinodal Decomposition; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The sun provides us daily with large quantities of energy in the form of light. With the world’s increasing demand of electrical energy the prospect of converting this solar light into electricity is highly tempting. In the strive towards mass-production and low cost solar cells, new types of solar cells are being developed, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. The morphology of polyfluorene : fullerene blend films for photovoltaic applications

    Author : Ana Sofia Anselmo; Håkan Rensmo; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials Science; Organic Photovoltaics; Polymer Solar Cells; Materialteknik; Materials Engineering;

    Abstract : Polymer photovoltaic systems whose photoactive layer is a blend of a semiconducting polymer with a fullerene derivative in a bulk heterojunction configuration are amongst the most successful organic photovoltaic devices nowadays. The three-dimensional organization in these layers (the morphology) plays a crucial role in the performance of the devices. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optical modelling of conjugated polymers : from materials to devices

    Author : Nils-Krister Persson; Andy Monkman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Spectroscopic ellipsomctry; optical modelling; organic solar cell; conjugated polymer; polyfluorene; polythiophene; copolymer; fullerene blend; photovoltaic device; dielectric function; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Measurements and modelling of theoretical properties of polymer-based photovoltaic devices, PPVDs, are the subjects of this thesis. Modelling refers both to modelling of materials, based on extraction of the dielectric function, and to modelling of devices by computer simulation of the optical electrical field inside PPVDs.

  4. 4. Morphology studies of thin films of polyfluorene: fullerene blends

    Author : Cecilia Björström; Kjell Magnusson; Mats Fahlman; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The formation of thin films of polymer blends by spin-coating from solution is characterised by rapid solvent quenching, a process that results in non-equilibrium morphologies. Thin films of conjugated polymer blends are used as the active material in polymer solar cells, in which the morphology may have drastic effects on device performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Conjugated polymers for optoelectronics

    Author : Lars Johan Lindgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polymer Light-Emitting Diodes; Conjugated polymers; Polyfluorenes; Polymer Solar Cells;

    Abstract : The work presented in thesis is divided into two parts; conjugated polymers for light-emitting diodes and conjugated polymers for solar cells. The main focus was on the synthesis and characterisation of the conjugated polymers, together with device preparation and characterisation. READ MORE
