Introducing High-performance Non-fullerene Organic Solar Cells

Organic solar cells (OSCs) has driven their efficiencies to above 10% to reach a viable level for commercialization. However, the increase in the photoactive layer thickness has resulted in lower efficiency levels, which therefore brings much complex manufacturing process. A research team, led by Professor Changduk Yang and his research team in the School of Energy and Chemical Engineering at
