17.The measured EBL range has been extended to even thicker BPhen layers of 100 nm. However, the reliability and significance of this data is strongly limited by the small currents and therefore has been omitted in this discussion.

In this work, we address the microscopic effects related to the implementation of a bathophenanthroline (BPhen) exciton blocking layer (EBL) sandwiched between Ag cathode and molecular diindenoperylene (DIP)/C60 bilayer of a photovoltaic cell. Complementary studies of current density, external quantum efficiency, and photoluminescence quenching for EBL thicknesses up to 50 nm indicate that Ag atoms are able to penetrate through the whole 35 nm thick C60 film into the polycrystalline DIP layer underneath, thereby enhancing exciton quenching if no blocking layer is applied. In contrast, an optimal trade-off between exciton blocking, suppression of metal penetration, and electron transport is achieved for a 5 nm thick BPhen layer yielding an improvement of power conversion efficiency by more than a factor of 2.
