    Abstract

    The use of three low band gap polymers in large area roll-to-roll coated modules is demonstrated. The polymers were prepared by a Stille cross coupling polymerization and all had a band gap around 1.6 eV. The polymers were first tested in small area organic photovoltaic devices which showed efficiencies from 0.4 to 2 %. Then large area roll-to-roll coated modules were processed and these showed efficiencies up to 0.6 %. It is clear that further study is necessary before this type of polymer is competitive with P3HT in large area modules.
