We present a study of charge recombination in polyfluorene:[6,6]-Phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) blend photovoltaic cells. The recombination kinetics of photogenerated charge carriers are investigated at room temperature by frequency and time domain photoinduced absorption. Monomolecular and bimolecular recombination processes are discussed in detail. Finally, a discussion on what kind of recombination can be dominant in our photovoltaic cells is addressed.
