Active layers of bulk heterojunction are extensively studied because of their great potential for application in low-cost optoelectronic devices like photovoiltaic cells and photodiodes. The performance of such devices is strongly influenced by the formed nanostructures which determine the transport ability of the organic composite. We investigated the charge carrier transport properties of two organic composites: poly(3-hexyothiophene) (P3HT) with (6,6)-phenyl-C60-butyric acid methyl ester (60PCBM)and poly(triarylamine) (PTTA) blended with 60PCBM. The optimised organic blend was used as a matrix material for Cu-In-Se nanocrystals. Adding Cu–In–Se nanocrystals to a P3HT/60PCBM bulk heterojunction leads to a significant improvement of the maximum external quantum efficiency of the investigated system from 48% to 70% (at wavelength 520 nm).
