Abstract

Organic solar cells were fabricated from polymers based on benzodifuran and benzobisoxazole. Through optimizations, a maximum power conversion efficiency of 2.89 % was obtained for solar cells fabricated with benzodifuran-based polymers. Through similar optimizations, a maximum power conversion efficieny of 2.78% was obtained for solar cells fabricated with benzobisoxazole-based polymers.
