Paul takes the leadership in publishing a review on historic and future NFA developments on behalf of Advanced Energy Materials 10th anniversary
The emergence of a family of materials-the nonfullerene acceptors (NFAs) – has rocked OPV science and technology during the last 5 years. NFAs have delivered a discontinuous advance in cell efficiencies, with the significant milestone of 20% now in sight. These materials challenge the accepted wisdom of how organic solar cells work and force new thinking in areas such as morphology, charge generation and recombination. This perspective provides a historical context for the development of NFAs, and also addresses current thinking in these areas but also critically questions how far can they can be further pushed, and whether they will deliver on equally important metrics such as stability.
