Abstract [en]

To explore enhancing photocurrent in organic solar cells (OSCs) via harvesting triplet excitons, two novel bicycloiridium complexes (R-1 and R-2) are designed and synthesized. Conventional bulk-heterojunction triplet OSCs are solution processed using R-1 or R-2 as sole electron donors and phenyl-C-71-butyric acid methyl ester (PC71BM) as the electron acceptor. A decent short circuit current (J(sc)) of 6.5 mA cm(-2) is achieved though the overlap between the absorption spectrum (with similar to 550 nm absorption onset) of R-2 and the solar flux is relatively small. With an open circuit voltage of 0.74 V and a fill factor of 0.42, an encouraging power conversion efficiency of 2.0% is achieved in the OSCs based on R-2 and PC71BM without any processing additives and post-treatments. Our preliminary result demonstrates the possibility of utilizing Ir complexes as sole electron donors in OSCs, which extends available soluble small molecules for OSCs.
