Abstract: Most of the high-performance all-polymer solar cells (all-PSCs) reported to date are based on polymer donor and polymer acceptor pairs with largely overlapped light absorption properties, which seriously limits the efciency of all-PSCs. This study reports the development of a series of random copolymer donors possessing complementary light absorption with the naphthalenediimide-based polymer acceptor P(NDI2HD-T2) for highly efcient all-PSCs. By controlling the molar ratio of the electron-rich benzodithiophene (BDTT) and electron-decient uorinated-thienothiophene (TT-F) units, a series of polymer donors with BDTT:TT-F ratios of 1:1 (P1), 3:1 (P2), 5:1 (P3), and 7:1 (P4) are prepared. The synthetic control of polymer composition allows for precise tuning of the light absorption properties of these new polymer donors, enabling optimization of light absorption properties to complement those of the P(NDI2HD-T2) acceptor. Copolymer P1 is found to be the optimal polymer donor for the fullerene-based solar cells due to its high light absorption, whereas the highest power conversion efciency of 6.81% is achieved for the all-PSCs with P3, which has the most complementary light absorption with P(NDI2HD-T2).
