Abstract

Bulk-heterojunction (BHJ) polymer solar cells have achieved significant progress in the recent years, with the efficiency now over 10 %. The p-type polymer in the BHJ blend played a key role in the amazing technology advance. In this chapter, we will timely update over 80 conjugated polymers leading to high-performance solar cells. The principle of molecular design with structure-properties relationship with respect to device characteristics will also be discussed, as the materials and morphology are tightly interconnected.
