Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

SEM image of P3HT nanowires generated from a blended film initially containing 33 wt. % P3HT and 77 wt. % 6.4 k MW PS. The scale bar is 200 nm wide.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

SEM images of P3HT nanowires generated from blended films initially containing (a) 30 wt. % P3HT, (b) 40 wt. % P3HT, (c) 50 wt. % P3HT, and (d) 75 wt. % P3HT. The remaining balance of all films is 10.4 k MW PS. The scale bars are 1 m wide in parts (a)-(c) and 500 nm wide in part (d).

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Areal fraction of P3HT films with nanowire morphology in (e), along with SEM images of P3HT nanowires generated from blended films initially containing (a) 30, (b) 40, (c) 50, and (d) 75 wt. % P3HT. The scale bars are 5 m wide.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Effective surface roughness () and wetting fraction () as calculated from surface-contact angle measurements presented in Table I .

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

(Color) WAXS data from (a) pristine planar P3HT, (b) a blended P3HT/PS film containing 50 wt. % P3HT, and (c) a P3HT nanowire film generated by removal of PS from an initial P3HT/PS film containing 50 wt. % P3HT.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

(a) curves of all-organic PV devices fabricated by backfilling with PCBM a planar P3HT film (dashed line) (cast from a solution of 15 mg/ml P3HT), and a nanowire P3HT film (solid line) (P3HT/PS solution containing 15 mg/ml (50 wt. %) P3HT). (b) curves of hybrid PV devices fabricated by backfilling with CdSe NCs a planar P3HT film (dashed line) (15 mg/ml P3HT), and a nanowire P3HT film (solid line) (P3HT/PS solution containing 15 mg/ml (33 wt. %) P3HT). The films represented by dashed lines are called planar-bilayer-prepared in the text.

Tables

Generic image for table
TABLE I.

Average surface contact angles made by water droplets in contact with P3HT films after removal of PS from blends containing different initial P3HT content.
