We characterized bulk-heterojunction (BHJ) solar cells using a new phenylene-thiophene oligomer, 3,7-bis[5-(4-n-hexylphenyl)-2-thienyl]dibenzothiophene-5,5-dioxide (37HPTDBTSO), and phenyl-C61-butyric-acid methyl ester (PCBM). Their photovoltaic properties including current-voltage characteristics and spectrum response were investigated. It was found that 37HPTDBTSO is appraised to be valuable electron donor. The characteristics of BHJ solar cells using mixed two donors of 37HPTDBTSO and a polymer of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) were further investigated. OSC using the blend film of mixed donars and PCBM achieved a power conversion efficiency of 0.89%.
