Abstract: Ternary organic photovoltaic devices were prepared through the addition of small amounts of metalloporphyin-terthiophenes to two established low bandgap polymer:fullerene blends. The methodology afforded a PCDTBT:PC71BM-based device that displayed an initial power conversion efficiency of 5.1%, an increase of 16% when compared to the binary blend. Among the range of metalloporphyrins considered in this study, the Cu(II)-porphyrin derivatives were found to result in the most significant efficiency improvements.
