         Incorporating two polymer donors with different bandgaps to compose a ternary blend bulk heterojunction (BHJ) is proved an effective approach to improve the device performance of BHJ polymer solar cells (PSCs). Here, A low band gap (LBG) polymer PDTP-DFBT is incorporated into PTB7:PC71BM host blend to compose a ternary blend system. Besides extending the absorption range, the crystallinity and preferred face-on orientation of PTB7 are simultaneously improved. Combining a cathod interfacial modification, a successful ternary blend PSC with a high efficiency 9.06% is achieved.
