A method to determine surface recombination velocities at collecting contacts in interface-limited organic semiconductor devices, based on the extraction of injected carrier reservoirs in a single-carrier sandwich-type structure, is presented. The analytical framework is derived and verified with drift-diffusion simulations. The method is demonstrated on solution-processed organic semiconductor devices with hole-blocking TiO2/organic and SiO2/organic interfaces, relevant for solar cell and transistor applications, respectively.
