Modified [6,6] -phenyl-C-70-butyric acid methyl ester (CN-PC70BM) is employed as an electron acceptor along with poly[4,8-bis(5-(2-ethylhexyl)thiophen-2-yl)benzo[1,2-b; 4,5-b]clithiophene-2,6-diy]-alt-(4(2-ethylhexyl)-3-fluorothieno[3,4-6]thiophene-)-2-carboxylate-2-6-diyl)] (PTB7-Th) polymer as donor for solution-processed organic solar cells. Inverted device architecture is adopted to fabricate the photovoltaic devices. Using chloronaphthalene as an additive, a high power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 8.2% is achieved with an excellent open circuit voltage (V-oc) of 0.9 V, short-circuit current density (J(sc)) of 13.5 mA cm(-2) and fill factor of 0.68 as compared to PCE of 5.4% from the reference solar cell using PC70BM.
