We present our study of conjugated polymer-small molecule (SM)-non-fullerene ternary organic solar cells (OSCs), which employs conjugated polymer PTB7-Th and small molecule p-DTS(FBTTh2)(2) as donors and non-fullerene molecule IEICO-4F as an acceptor. It is observed that the power conversion efficiency (PCE) of similar to 10.9% for PTB7-Th: p-DTS(FBTTh2)(2): IEICO-4F ternary OSCs with 15 wt% of p-DTS(FBTTh2)(2) SM is higher than PCE of similar to 9.8% for PTB7-Th: IEICO-4F OSCs. Morphological studies confirm that the addition of p-DTS(FBTTh2) 2 SM in PTB7-Th: IEICO-4F binary blend improves molecular ordering and crystallinity of PTB7-Th due to the favorable interaction with p-DTS(FBTTh2)(2) thereby providing 3-D textured structures consisting of a mixture of edge-on and face-on orientations. The improved molecular ordering is shown to enhance exciton generation rate, exciton dissociation, charge collection, and to reduce charge recombination, all of which boosts the PCE.
