Novel wide-bandgap semiconducting polymers are designed and synthesized for multijunction polymer solar cell (PSC) applications. In single-junction PSCs, BDT-FBT-2T exhibits efficiencies exceeding 6.5% for active layer thicknesses between 90 and 250 nm, with the highest efficiency of 7.7% at 100 and 250 nm. This enables tandem PSCs to be created with an efficiency of 8.9%.
