Copyright © Materials Research Society 2014. We investigate the built-in voltage in organic bulk heterojunction solar cells using electroabsorption spectroscopy based on the Stark effect, i.e. the variation of the absorption energies of a material caused by an electric field. Due to spectral contributions of permanent dipoles, a novel approach for evaluating the EA spectra is required. We use a fitting routine analyzing a broad spectral range instead of using only a single wavelength. A reliable quantitative determination of the built-in voltage is achieved.
