          Abstract

          In this review, we first present general principles of ternary solar cells, followed by a comprehensive review of recent advances in ternary systems including the D 1:D 2:A system and D:A 1:A 2 system. In the end, we summarize the fundamentals and provide a prospect on organic ternary solar cells.

          Abstract

          In recent years, ternary solar cells have become an important photovoltaic-technology since they combine the merits of both single junction and tandem solar cells with their processing ease, mechanical flexibility, and lightweight. To date, their efficiency has reached over 12%, which paved the way for commercialization of organic solar cells. In this review, we first present general principles of ternary solar cells, followed by a comprehensive review of recent advances in ternary systems including the D 1:D 2:A system and D:A 1:A 2 system. In the end, we summarize the fundamentals and provide a prospect on organic ternary solar cells.

              Fullerene-Free Polymer Solar Cells with over 11% Efficiency and Excellent Thermal Stability.

              A nonfullerene-based polymer solar cell (PSC) that significantly outperforms fullerene-based PSCs with respect to the power-conversion efficiency is demonstrated for the first time. An efficiency of >11%, which is among the top values in the PSC field, and excellent thermal stability is obtained using PBDB-T and ITIC as donor and acceptor, respectively.
