  • The image depicts the three-dimensional network of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) nanorods formed in a photoactive layer made of P3HT and a methanofullerene derivative PCBM. This network structure was reconstructed with nanometer resolution in all three dimensions by applying the technique of electron tomography. A great deal of new structural information that can never be obtained from conventional microscopy or scattering methods can be evaluated directly from the 3D volume data provided by electron tomography. The genuine three-dimensionality of the P3HT network, high crystalline order of P3HT, and favorable distribution of both P3HT and PCBM through the thickness of the photoactive layer account for high power conversion efficiency in the corresponding solar cell device.
