Abstract [en]

In this work, we investigated the impact of bridge unit on their photo-physical and photovoltaic performance. Increased planarity of the dyes effectively extended the absorption, but reduces the efficiency. Interestingly we found that dyes with a thiophene conjugate unit showed inferior performance when compared with benzene. Theoretical computation indicates a large dihedral angle in the latter system. EIS analysis evidenced the severe recombination in the thiophene-based dye, showing that good planarity may lead to dye aggregation and decrease the efficiency.
