In this thesis we design and explore new high-throughput methodologies designed to allow the screening of Organic Solar Cells performance variations in multiple parameters, speeding the optimization process. These methodologies are based on the manufacturing of gradients in the parameters of interest, and aim to change the prototyping-intensive approach of Organic Solar Cell research to a measuring-intensive approach allowing for the creation of binary and ternary composition libraries of more than 10000 data points per sample using only a fraction of the materials and time needed in standard methodologies. This methodology is applied to multiple binary and ternary systems, revealing complex performance landscapes and accelerating the optimization process for new Organic solar cells systems.
