4.1 Introduction

With the advantages of being low cost, lightweight and flexible, organic photovoltaics are becoming a promising technology for sustainable energy harvesting. As a result of the continuous efforts of the worldwide research community, the current power conversion efficiency (PCE) record of organic photovoltaic cells has reached 12% [1] and the projected lifetime is more than 7 years [2]. Nevertheless, almost all advancements in organic photovoltaics so ...
