ITIC-2F (n-type acceptor)
ITIC-2F shows a more red-shifted absorption than ITIC with an improved absorption coefficient, which can be ascribed to enhanced intramolecular charge transfer. For this reason, devices with ITIC-2F as acceptors can cover a broader absorption spectrum - which can potentially enhance the device PCEs.
ITIC-2F also has deeper HOMO/LUMO energy levels. This makes it a better match for most polymer semiconductor donors, and provides better stability for device fabrication and overall performance.
Efficiency of over 13% was achieved when ITIC-2F (IT-4F) was used as an acceptor with polymer PBDB-T-SF as the active-layer donor material with a inverted device structure: indium tin oxide (ITO)/ZnO/PBDB-T-SF:TI-4F (1:1)/MoO3/Al .
We also now have ITIC-DCl available as another NFA for highly efficient organic solar cells.
ITIC-2F from Ossila was used in the high-impact paper (IF 18.81), Stretchable and Transparent Conductive PEDOT:PSS-Based Electrodes for Organic Photovoltaics and Strain Sensors Applications, E. Dauzon et al., Adv. Fun. Mater., 30 (28), 2001251 (2020); DOI: 10.1002/adfm.202001251.
