Blend films (P3HT:PCBM=1:1 by weight) were prepared using chlorobenzene and 1,2-dichlorobenzene in order to investigate the role of the solvent. Irrespective of the chosen solvent, the optimal device annealing temperature was found to be 140 °C. The highest power conversion efficiency, 3% under air mass 1.5 simulated solar illumination (100 mW cm2), was achieved by device annealing at 140 °C for 15 min using blend films prepared from chlorobenzene (2.3% for 1,2-dichlorobenzene)||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7698||ISSN:||0003-6951 (print)
