Blends of carbon nanotubes with conjugated polymer and fullerene derivatives are complex nanocomposite systems, which have recently attracted great research interest for their photovoltaic ability. Therefore, gaining a better understanding of the excitonic dynamics in such materials can be important to boost the efficiency of excitonic solar cells. Here, we studied the photophysics of a ternary system in which the polymer PTB7 and the fullerene derivative PCBM are integrated with (6,5) single walled carbon nanotubes. We highlight the contribution of SWNTs in the exciton dissociation and in the charge transfer process. These findings can be useful for the exploitation of these multi-component systems for organic photovoltaic and, in general, optoelectronic applications.
