Abstract

In this paper, a bilayer hole extraction layer (HEL) with solution-processed molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) and two-dimensional (2D) material of antimonene was developed to achieve high performance nonfullerene organic solar cells (NF–OSCs). The application of antimonene facilitates effective charge extraction and lowered recombination loss, achieving improved photovoltaic performance. By inserting the antimonene layer, power conversion efficiency (PCE) of devices with MoO3 HEL was increased from 8.92% to 11.30% in OSCs with non-fullerene systems of PBDB-T-2F:IT-4F, which was even much higher than that of the devices with PEDOT:PSS HEL (10.59%). Results make it clear that the solution-processed bilayer MoO3/antimonene HEL shows great potential for application in high performance PEDOT:PSS-free NF–OSCs.
