Abstract

In this paper, a new perylene diimide (PDI)-based acceptor Me-PDI4 with tetrahedral configuration (or 3D) has been synthesized and characterized. Solution-processed organic solar cells (OSCs) based on Me-PDI4 have been investigated and our results show that the device performance can reach as high as 2.73%. Our new design with tetrahedral configuration (or 3D) could be an efficient approach to increase the PCE of OSCs with non-fullerene acceptors.
