Paper Summary by Dr David Huang: Computational study of P3HT/C60-fullerene miscibility

Flexible plastic solar cells can be made from mixtures of conducting polymer and fullerene (buckyball) molecules. This work uses theory and computer simulations to show that typical mixtures of these molecules are very close to the limits of miscibility. This result has implications for the performance of plastic solar cells, which is sensitive to the degree to which the molecules demix.
