Prolonging the lifetime of OPVs

We have published a new paper in Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells in which we report a significant improvement in lifetime of P3HT:PCBM solar cells by blending with inert PMMA.  We show that the PMMA forms columns in the … Continue reading

New Paper on Charge Transport in Semicrystalline Polymers

We have published a new Paper in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C in which we examine the relationship between morphology and charge transport in semicrystalline conjugated polymers, specifically P3HT.  In it we generate realistic morphologies using a course-grained molecular … Continue reading

New paper on noise in bipolar BHJ devices

Following the work of Aled Williams, who examined how noise can be used to investigate morphology in unipolar diodes, we have published a further paper investigating whether the technique can be extended to bipolar devices where both electron and hole … Continue reading

Paper using noise to quantify networks

 We have published a new paper in which we examine the use of noise spectroscopy to characterise blend morphology in P3HT:PS diodes.  In it we show that we can differentiate electrically between networks which are homogeneous and heterogeneous, possibly opening up … Continue reading
