|Organic solar cells (OSCs) have attracted tremendous attention during the last two decades because of their specific properties. Any effort to optimize the performance of OSCs while maintaining their power conversion efficiency (PCE) is of high importance for expanding their applications. One of the most noticeable methods for enhancing the efficiency of the OSCs is tuning their morphology, specifically the active layer morphology. For this purpose, different techniques have been proposed. Post-treatment processes including thermal annealing (TA) and solvent vapor annealing (SVA) treatments are among the most applied and studied procedures. This study aims to give a summary of the paths through which TA and SVA affect the morphology and performance of OSCs by reviewing some of the recent studies in this area.
