FIG. 1.

Steady-state device characteristics of P3HT:F8TBT devices. (a) Spectral response of EQE of an optimized 70 nm thick device (solid) and of a 220 nm thick device (dashed) measured at an intensity of ; (b) corresponding current voltage curves under simulated sunlight ( AM1.5G); (c) intensity dependence of short-circuit current under monochromatic illumination at 525 nm. In part (c) the symbols represent the data while the straight lines are power law fits of the form (squares: 70 nm thick device, ; circles: 220 nm thick device, ).
